October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and if you’ve been following Heart Hook Home for long, you know that this is a topic very close to my heart. Even though I used pink for my ribbons, this free crochet pattern for cancer awareness earrings can represent ANY cancer in ANY month. Help to spread the word with just one skein of embroidery floss. ♥

Cancer Awareness Crochet Pattern

My mother and I are very close. At the very beginning of 2019, I was with her when she got the call from her doctor. The test results were in. After he said that nasty five letter word, there was silence, there were copious amounts of tears (mostly on my part), and lots of hugs. I am so thankful that I was able to keep her company during her chemo treatments and I am even more happy to say that after many rounds of chemotherapy, followed by radiation, followed by a lumpectomy, and now life-long continued medications – she is now officially cancer-free! Which is great because I need my mom around for as long as possible.

One of my best friends from high school had her first round of chemotherapy yesterday for breast cancer (and we are only in our mid-thirties!). Please attended regular checkups and follow the recommended intervals for breast cancer screening – it could literally save your life. If you or someone dear to you is undergoing cancer treatment, please know that you are loved. You are so much stronger than you know, and I am rooting for you!

Open a jump ring using your needle nose pliers, and insert into the top-most stitch of the ribbon. Add the earring piece and close the jump ring. Voila! You are finished. Now do it all over again to make the second earring. šŸ˜‰

Row 1: Ch-41, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each to end. (40)

Rows 2 – 5: Ch-1, turn, sc in each st to end. (40)

Cancer awareness lapel pin crochet pattern

Position your strip of crochet as pictured. When you have it where you want it, pin into place. Using a sewing needle, thread the embroidery floss up to where the fabric overlaps. Sew securely around all sides, going through both layers of fabric. Before weaving in ends, position the pin back and secure with needle and remaining thread. Weave in ends and you are done!

I have noticed that the larger lapel pin wants to curl a bit. A bit of starch will help to keep that from happening.

I love how quick these are to work up. If you find the perfect shade of DMC floss for other cancer awareness months, please do leave a comment on this post with the floss color number. We all appreciate it! ♥
