This Pattern available in Leaflet #5654 Knitting For A Cure. This book features 18 projects/designs to offer support and encouragement for those battling breast cancer.

This Shawl is about 50 Ravelry knitters from 50 different states. It’s journey will begin in Arkansas and once it has been passed to a knitter in every state of our GREAT country, it will return. We hope to accomplish this in 1 year. When the journey of this shawl is complete, we will raffle it off and the proceeds will be donated to the breast cancer research. Everyone has been impacted in some way by breast cancer. Each entry will highlight the knitter, their state, and the person in whose honor or memory that they are knitting for. Enjoy the journey with us.

Don’t forget to get your mammogram.

This pattern is written with an option for a Scarf, too. The Scarf version takes 275 yards of yarn. Thank you.
