October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Cancer patients may loose their hair from treatment and often have to spend long hours in cold hospitals. I’ve gathered 21 FREE Yarnspirations and Marly Bird knit and crochet patterns for hats, scarves, cowls, and shawls to make to give to cancer patients, whether your family, friends, or in your community. They’re in pink, the traditional awareness color for breast cancer, but you can easily make them in another color for a different cancer awareness or in the recipient’s favorite color.
