Noni pattern 209 - Forget-Me-Not
(3 in stock)
Noni says: "This flower is a tribute to all women who have struggled against breast cancer, those who have struggled and survived and those who have not. Forget-me-nots are delicate looking flowers, but this delicacy belies their strength and tenacity. They are beautiful in the wildest and most wasted of places. They survive. They endure. They come back. The specific tributes you see in the background of this pattern are from the family members of women who have fought breast cancer. If you would like your own tribute added to this pattern, please write to me at email@example.com.
I was inspired to make this flower when Dorret Conway (www.knitknack.co.uk) contacted me from England with a request. She wanted to wear flowers I designed on a decorated bra in a special walk called the Moon Walk, a breast cancer research fundraising walk organized by WalktheWalk (www.walkthewalk.org), and she wanted to publish the pattern for free on the internet. I decided to do one better: design a special flower and then donate all my pattern sales profits to breast cancer research through the WalktheWalk organization and the Susan G. Komen foundation in the USA (www.komen.org). My hope is that women all over the US and Europe will wear the Noni Forget-Me-Not at breast cancer fundraising events, decorating bras, t-shirts, sneakers, and flip flops, knowing that every pattern purchase will help the fight.
The flowers you see on the pattern cover will decorate a bra that will also help the fight as a donation to a fund raising auction in October 2007 for LifeBridge Health Department (www.bravolifebridge.org). I hope you will buy this pattern (and knit lots of flowers) because by doing so you are helping to raise funds and awareness about breast cancer.
Pattern Difficulty Level: Beginner to Advanced. Requires knowledge of knitting and purling, knitting on the round on double pointed needles."
