21 Free Breast Cancer Patterns to Knit and Crochet
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so we’d like to highlight some free breast cancer patterns to knit and crochet. Unfortunately, it’s common for cancer patients to lose their hair from treatment. And they often have to spend long hours in cold hospitals. So we’ve gathered 21 FREE Yarnspirations and Marly Bird knit and crochet patterns for hats, scarves, cowls, and shawls. You can make these for cancer patients, whether your family, friends or in your community.
Of course, 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 the recipient’s favorite color.
