Designer’s Note: This pattern is dedicated to my son, Johnny, who unexpectedly died from a heart attack at age 41, leaving a beautiful wife and two beautiful children. Please protect yourself and your loved ones from this deadly disease! ~ Rosemary “Chappy” Chapman

This is an easy knit sock only using knit and purl stitches! Pattern is completely written out and also graphed.

There are 3 Pattern Bands depicted on Johnny’s Sock:

The Artery Band: 82 million adult Americans have 1 or more types of heart disease – that is 1 in every 3 people. The circles in this band represent those open and closed arteries.

The Broken Heart Band: An average of 2,200 Americans die every day from heart disease – that is 1 loved on every 39 seconds! Many of our families have been affected by this disease. This band represents the hearts that have been broken and the many tears shed.

The EKG (Electrocardiogram) Band: 90% of all women have 1 or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Heart disease is the number 1 cause of death in women aged 20 or older – killing 1 woman every minute! More women die of heart disease than the next four causes of death combined – including all forms of cancer. Get yourself or a loved one tested! (All heart related facts within this pattern are quoted directly from the American Heart Association© website.)

All monies from the sale of this pattern are being donated to Genesis Heart Institute. Genesis Heart Institute is a 501c3 charitable organization which is ranked in the top 25 heart institutes nationally. The money goes directly to patients for early detection of heart disease - no money goes to administration.

Please open your heart & get this pattern in hopes of helping to prevent, to stop and to heal heart disease!!!

With love and sincerity,
