Cancer. A terrible disease that can leave those that face it powerless and searching for answers. I can not cure cancer, but I can support those that face the disease. I know that crochet is a form of therapy for many and with my videos I want to make a difference.
Another organization that wants to make a difference is the Lymphoma Association, an association that supports people suffering from lymphoma cancer such as Hodgkin and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The Lymphoma Association has launched their Crochet for Cancer Campaign to raise awareness for lymphoma cancer and support those that suffer from the disease.
As part of the Crochet for Cancer Campaign there is a Periwinkle Flower Brooch, the symbol of the association, that you can make and wear to show your support. I would like to show you how to make this Periwinkle Flower Brooch. The brooch has been designed by Lymphoma Lass, someone that knows the hardships of lymphoma cancer first hand.
You don’t need much to make these flower brooches, about 10 meters of yarn will get you a long way. I used Catona yarn that I have a lot of, but you can use any yarn you like. You will also need a brooch pin or safety pin so that you can secure the brooch to your coat or bag.
In the video tutorial I show you how to make the Periwinkle Flower Brooch. Please note that I use UK Terms in this video; this is because the Lymphoma Association is UK based. If you are more comfortable with US Terms, you can find a conversion chart here for the most common terms.
