Each season we feature a knitting and a crochet pattern by BIPOC designers, and we select a nonprofit organization to receive a portion of proceeds from those projects. We have chosen Knitted Knockers to be the beneficiary of our Spring 2023 Giving Projects. Knitted Knockers connects volunteer knitters and crocheters with breast cancer survivors to provide soft, handmade prosthetics.
From April 1 through June 30, 2023, your purchase of yarn to knit Francoise Danoy's Wifty Top or crochet Clarisabeth Lopez Rodriguez's Flower Child top will help Knitted Knockers to do their important work.
For our Flower Child sample, we used sport-weight Cascade Llamerino. Another lovely option would be Ecopuno by Lana Grossa or Nua by Stolen Stitches. For Wifty we used Malabrigo Ultimate Sock (in-store only). Other great choices for Wifty are Malabrigo Sock, Madelinetosh Twist Light, Less Traveled Yarn Paloma, and Cascade Heritage.
