I know from hosting the last 5 years of the Cancer Challenge that there are many of you that cannot wait for October 1st to begin. So, I have a little starter project just for you.
The Cancer Awareness Ribbon applique is a great add on to hats, scarves, blankets or whatever you are making. Especially if you are donating to a specific Cancer Center (breast cancer, children’s cancer, etc) because you can make it in the corresponding color.
Get Started Early with the Cancer Awareness Ribbon
A couple years ago I had someone share a photo of a hat they had made for a donation. The hat featured a Cancer Awareness Ribbon. This was such a thoughtful touch to add to a donated hat so I wanted to share it with you. The best part was that the pattern by CrochetBug is free on their blog, you can find the link HERE.
So, I encourage you to go grab some scrap yarn and your trusty crochet hook. Sit down in front of your favorite show or pod cast and whip us a handful of these awareness ribbons.
