Pink Friday's Project - Awareness

Brio Cowl long - clean

Designed for our 2017 Pink Friday breast cancer awareness fund-raiser, this pattern is a multiple of 8 stitches which reminds us that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Awareness is an easy knit in a fun yarn with gently shifting colors and subtle twinkle.

For every kit purchased this month, we'll be donating $10 to MedStar St. Mary's Breast Cancer Outreach and Awareness program.
