As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink is everywhere – clothing, hair, nails, ribbons, you name it. Many are showing their support and pride by sporting the color pink as well as participating in a number of walks and runs to raise funds for ongoing research and administration.
Almost every year since 2005, my daughter and I have participated in a walk of some kind. For 3 years, we walked in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day 60-mile walk in Philadelphia. Now we participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in the Lehigh Valley. This year’s will take place on Saturday, October 26. We’ll be walking with hundreds of others through beautiful historic Bethlehem. You can make a donation directly to our team, Treasured Chest.
You can also support us this year by purchasing a copy of my pattern Side Stripe Breast Cancer Scarf. The pattern can be found on Craftsy and Ravelry. 10% of all sales from this pattern will go toward our team.
This scarf is simple to make up. It employs the crochet woven stitch (sc, ch1 space across). By changing colors every row, the scarf looks as though it was make from side to side instead of lengthwise. Using Plymouth Yarn Company’s Encore Worsted and a size H hook, the scarf has a wonderfully warm drape to it.
Show your pink spirit!!!
