Day 6: Cancer Challenge – Darcy’s Crochet Creations

Sharing is caring!

The Cancer Challenge has had 5 beautiful hat patterns already this month. Today we are going to switch it up a bit and feature a lap blanket. This one is designed by Darcy’s Crochet Creations and was created just for this event. If you are just now joining, I am so excited to have you jump on board, if you want to read a little more about what the challenge is follow this link: HERE.

Day 6: Pattern by Darcy’s Crochet Creations

Each designer is helping so much by giving away a premium crochet pattern for this charitable event. I want to make sure to acknowledge them and thank them for their talents so please be sure to visit their pages and say thank you or give them a little love by favoriting a design or two on Ravelry.

Darcy's Crochet Creations

Todays pattern was designed by Darcy over at Darcy’s Crochet Creations. Darcy has been a participating designer in the Crochet Cancer Challenge every year and I am honored that she continues to support us with a new design every year. This year instead of a hat, Darcy’s Crochet Creations is offering the Life’s Bumps Afghan pattern. This smaller blanket is designed to just warm your lap and could come in handy during office visits.

    I’m happy to see this. An independent yarn shop in my town collects lap blankets to donate to a hospice where the husband of one of the owners volunteers. I donated several already, but I like to use different patterns. Thank you!
