2020 Crochet Cancer Challenge

Sharing is caring!

October marks the month of Cancer Awareness and I am so excited to host another year of the Crochet Cancer Challenge. This has been an annual event that began in 2014, seven years later it has grown due to the generosity of the crochet community.

Crochet Cancer Challenge

Our crochet community does so much for others by making handmade items and in this event those said items are all donated. Donations go to cancer patients or cancer centers in our own communities. We have this amazing opportunity to make a difference one hat at a time.

A Quick Overview of the Challenge

During the month of October a different crochet pattern designer will be featured. The designers has personally designed a hat in honor of someone they know, or to help bring awareness to a specific type of cancer. They will offer their design for FREE for 1 day only. If you download their pattern, you are taking a pledge to make a minimum of one hat from that pattern to donate.

Cancer Challenge Pledge

The Crochet Cancer Challenge has become so personal to so many of you and to so many of us designers. I appreciate all the time and efforts everyone puts into this event. I hope to spread the word this year, so I am asking that you share photos of your finished hats on social media or links to the challenge AND always use the #CrochetCancerChallenge . The more people see our challenge, the more it will grow and that means the more people we can touch in a positive way. We can all use a little more positivity in our lives in 2020.

    Love that you’re doing this. I’m going to share this post with my newsletter readers and on my site–it’s a food site but I think some of my readers do handwork.

    Love that Challenge. I’m from Austria. When I came across it last year I immediately wanted to take part in it. I donated my hats to a Cancer Center in Ried im Innkreis, that’s in Upper Austria. They were so happy about the hats so I decided to make some again this year. Thanks for this fantastic idea.
    Best regards from Austria!
