2020 Crochet Cancer Challenge – All October Long

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 Cancer 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.

2020 Final Pledge Count

Let’s just face it, 2020 has been a crazy year. Some of us are stuck at home with time on our hands. Some are stuck at home juggling working with our kids around and/or helping them with online school. We are all in our own world of craziness. 

Plus, some Cancer Centers were not taking donations due to COVID. So, I didn’t have any idea how our pledges would be. I am very excited to say that, although it wasn’t our biggest year, it was pretty darn close! 

October 2020Features

Below you can see all the gorgeous designs that were featured in this years Crochet Cancer Challenge. The code to get them for free has expired. However, you can still grab them from the links and support the designers. I hope you enjoyed the challenge and making each hat to give away and brighten someone’s day. I also hope you keep adding to that stash pile of yarn so you are for the 2021 challenge next year.

“I designed the Brain Freeze Beanie in honor of my Daddy, who was taken home to Jesus with the not-so-friendly assistance of Brain Cancer. My dad had a heck of a sweet tooth, and would never say “no” to a big bowl of ice cream, so I named his hat “Brain Freeze”.

“I released the Ice Cap Beanie in honor of my momma who was always cold and battled Ovarian Cancer for the last decade of her life. “

I chose testicular cancer because my son has it.  He has been fighting it since January 2010.  He is back to receiving treatment after being in remission for a couple of years.  So, for me this hits very close to home.  
I also lost a grandpa to lung cancer, a grandpa to brain cancer, a grandma to breast cancer, and an Uncle to bone cancer.  Cancer is all around us, not one of us has not had it personally touch our lives.  Even I have had my own battle with cervical cancer, and later pre-cancerous cells in my uterus, ovaries, and cervix that resulted in a radical hysterectomy…but no other treatment, thankfully.

2018 Crochet Cancer Challenge Final Pledges

We are a week into November and the 2018 Crochet Cancer Challenge has officially wrapped up. Every year that I have organized this Challenge, I am amazed at how committed everyone is to help out. The designers always reach out to join and come up with some amazing designs. All of you crocheters, who crochet relentlessly to create hats to give.

All of this encourages me to continue every year. This was my 5th year organizing the Crochet Cancer Challenge and I was blown away with our final pledge numbers.

Final Pledges

Just to let you know how amazing our final pledge count is, this surpassed last year by over 10,000! We could not have done this without each and everyone of you.

I hope you found the Crochet Cancer Challenge to be as rewarding as I did. I am already excited to organize next years to be even bigger and better. Make sure to bring those donations into your local cancer center, I took my stack in on Monday and it is always so rewarding. I like to think of my Uncle Jeff when I walk into donate, and it make me chuckle just remembering his laugh, it was one that I will never forget. I love you Uncle Jeff!

Sweet Potato 3

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE thank the designers.

A huge part of our success every year is how willing other crochet designers are to give a pattern in exchange for a pledge. I want them to know how much we all appreciate this. So, please, take a little time today to thank them. Write a message on their facebook page, send them an email or facebook message, or even share a photo of the hat you made from their design.

Crochet Cancer Challenge – BONUS DAY

WOW-I still cannot believe that October is behind us. The Crochet Cancer Challenge has been so amazing this year. I want to extend a huge thank you to all the designers that helped out, I couldn’t have done this without all of them. MORE important though, is all of you! You, fellow crocheters, are the ones who have made, 1, 2, 3, 15, 30, 60, 100 hats. Each one of those hats is what is making a difference. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

And NOW, I am so excited to announce that we are having a BONUS DAY! Throughout the Crochet Cancer Challenge I had a handful of other designers contact me asking if they could participate. At first I said I would put them on a list for next year. But…. then I got to thinking, who turns away help? Not me! So, today is a Bonus Day where I get to feature some new designers to the Challenge and we are offering some additional patterns in exchange for more PLEDGES!

For today’s pattern, I am very excited to have Kate from Crafting Friends Designs join us. Kate is one of the big reasons behind our featured weekend designs. She has asked to participate in the past years, but she doesn’t design hats. So this year, I decided to try something different on the weekends. Today, Crafting Friends Design came up with the beautiful Loop the Loop Cowl. I love the creative design within the color changes and how it creates a fun loop the loop look. This will work up quick and be a nice addition to your donation boxes this year. Grab your copy of the Loop the Loop Cowl from Crafting Friends Design Shop on Ravelry: HERE
