A serendipitous collaboration between Chad Lewis and Melanie Berg

A Row Map is a printable checklist that accompanies each row in a knitting pattern. It provides clear guidance to the knitter, indicating which row they are currently working on, the corresponding written instruction to follow, and the recommended color to use. All you need to do is check off each row as you complete it, allowing the Row Map to seamlessly guide you from start to finish.

Chad, a knitting instructor at a cancer center in Toronto, Canada, created his first Row Map to make knitting more accessible for individuals experiencing the cognitive challenges associated with “chemo brain.” He shared this Row Map with Melanie, a knitwear designer and cancer survivor who instantly understood its value, and a new cancer awareness initiative was born.

The Row Maps included in these patterns (scroll down to see all patterns) are our gift to you. If you find them helpful, please consider making a donation to a cancer research organization that best aligns with your heart. To the right are links to organizations that are meaningful to us and our work.

We believe that with the help of a Row Map, all knitters facing concentration challenges can confidently pick up their needles and continue knitting with ease. We thank you in advance and are grateful to include you in this beautiful initiative. Happy knitting!

I always think back with a smile to when Paul and I created Balayage. It was so much fun to receive all the wool samples in the mail, to create swatches and to decide about fiber contents, yarn weight, and the color palette of course. It’s a perfect yarn for shawls and it makes me so happy to see it loved and cherished by knitters all over the world.

If you haven’t knit with Balayage yet: You can order directly through the Pascuali website (they ship world-wide), or check the reseller list there to find a nearby LYS that carries it.
