If you are a proud feminist, this brooch is for you! Crochet this Rosie The Riveter’s arm and show the world how empowered you are!

Wear it in your everyday life or whenever you join a demonstration to fight for equal rights. This feminist symbol will shine proudly on your lapel or bag.

This is a simple pattern that is very quick to make, so you can crochet as many as possible to give away to your friends and allies.

Also, there is something SUUUPER important that I want to ask you, and it’s not to use this pattern for your own benefit. I’d like this pattern to be used to help platforms that work towards equality and justice: for women, LGTBIQ+ community, migrants, refugees, antiracist organizations, planned parenthood… So if you can crochet, make many brooches and donate them to women’s rights associations so they can sell them or share the pattern with them so they can crochet them and use it in their fundraising campaigns.
With your hook and good will you can change the world! And for me there wouldn’t be bigger satisfaction than knowing that with my humble pattern I’m contributing a little bit. Will you help me?

Materials needed:

  • 2,5mm crochet hook
  • Thin cotton yarn in two colors Color A: Skin tone of your choice Color B: Dark blue
  • Fiberfill
  • Tapestry needle and scissors
  • Safety pin or brooch base
  • Wire (optional)
