Facebook Page / Facebook Group

Canoe Mountain Designs designed this amazing hat called the Mountain Hope Beanie. Here is a note from Audrey, please take a minute to read.

I am thrilled to be able to contribute to the Cancer Challenge this year! Our lives have been touched by so much cancer over the years and I have been donating hats since I learned to crochet about 12 years ago. The color for Colon Cancer is Dark Blue. I chose Colon Cancer because my husband had surgery for this cancer about 6 years ago. He bounced back quickly and has returned to a normal life thankfully.

While I was thinking about what type of hat to design, I thought I would create a pattern in 3 sizes: Men’s, Women’s & Children’s. I also wanted something that would be fairly quick & easy, but still have some texture. Pom Poms are always a favorite of mine, so there is always the option of adding a faux fur pom pom or making your own yarn pom pom.

Audrey, Designer from Canoe Mountain Designs

Emerald Stone Crochet Hat Pattern

We are entering into the month of October and that means so much to me. October is Cancer Awareness Month. Many of us have unfortunately been touched by this horrible issue in our lives. Unfortunately, I lost a wonderful and amazing uncle 6 years ago to cancer. The Emerald Stone Hat was designed in honor of my uncle.

Emerald Liver Cancer Awareness

This year I wanted to focus on Liver Cancer in my hat design, the color of the awareness ribbon for liver cancer is, emerald. I find the emerald color beautiful. It is deep, rich in color and striking to look at. The meaning behind the emerald brings the color more meaning as well.

The emerald has extra benefits for those who align with its star sign, which may have helped many after ancient heroes discovered these traits giving psychological benefits: brings courage to face difficult trials, eases feelings of worry, enhances the benefits of reuniting with loved ones.

Emerald of Hope

Explaining it a little further:

Called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love.

Emerald Stone Hat

The Emerald Stone Hat, was made in a beautiful “emerald” color. While I was working up the stitches I kept thinking the design was looking like stones in a river bed. I find rivers to be peaceful and soothing to the soul. Emerald Stone Hat was easy to name due to the look and meaning behind the Emerald Stone and the connection to Liver Cancer and honoring my uncle.

Emerald STone Hat

The Emerald Stone crochet hat pattern comes in 3 sizes: child (3-12 years old), youth/womens, and adult/mens. Easily customize the hat with an oversized button or attach a pom to the top for a more youthful look.

The Crochet Cancer Challenge is almost here….

October is Cancer Awareness Month and I am excited to host the annual Crochet Cancer Challenge. This challenge is going on its 7th year and has been growing each year. It is always great to see the crochet community team up to make a difference.

Crochet Cancer Challenge

  Each year the challenge is essentially the same with some small changes. The goal is always the same:

We (all the designers participating) are calling all crocheters to pledge to crochet as many hats as possible. Crochet the hats from our newly released limited time FREE patterns that we are offering in exchange for your donation of that hat to a cancer patient or cancer center near you. This will reach so many corners around the world and will touch so many people during a very challenging time in their lives. Help us all make a difference, one hat at a time.

Sound Fun and Want More Details? 

Unfortunately, most of us have all been affected by cancer in some way. It is difficult to see someone go through cancer and/or chemotherapy. But with the support of their community and kindness of others will make the battle slightly less daunting.   The Crochet Cancer Challenge was started to honor of my Uncle Jeff, who lost his battle in September of 2014.

How does the Crochet Cancer Challenge work?

It is pretty simple and straight forward. I am asking all of you crocheters out there, to help make hats for cancer patients and cancer survivors. The hats can be crocheted for just about anyone:

  • someone you know,
  • someone your friends know,
  • a co-worker,
  • teacher,
  • neighbor,
  • or a complete stranger.

You can make one hat or as many hats as you can and donate them to your local cancer center.

How long does the crochet cancer challenge last?

October

The challenge will begin October 1 and run through October 31. Each day of the month (with the exception on Sundays) there will be a featured designer who will offer a FREE hat pattern in exchange for your pledge to make a hat to donate. We ask that all hats should be made and donated by the end of the year. But, if it takes a little longer, that is okay. Just keep working on them.

Stay tuned and Share your Work

I will be posting the daily hats on Instagram, Facebook and in my Facebook Group. Please follow each of these to stay up to date. AND I ask that you share your work by using the Hashtag #CrochetCancerChallenge in your posts! Call out your friends to join, it not only helps us pledge more hats, but makes it more fun and personal.
