For each book purchased, $1 is donated to breast cancer research through our Pink Project.
The twenty-six accessories in Crochet Pink are meant to be treasures for loved ones going through breast cancer and to be given as a show of support. Each project is done in a different shade of pink, the breast cancer awareness color; and the great variety of yarns used for the projects were chosen because they are soothing against the skin and comfortable to wear. Janet has so graciously included a list of all the "cancer awareness" colors so that crocheters affected by other types of cancer can do these same projects in alternate colors. Woven throughout the book are quotes from cancer patients and caregivers whom Janet has personally known, and they offer inspiration and guidance for continuing to move forward.

Janet Rehfeldt is the author of Crochet Pink, 26 Patterns to Crochet for Comfort, Gratitude and Charity. Pink is the color of breast cancer awareness. Did you know that each year in the U.S., there are 220,000 women who are diagnosed with breast cancer? Janet created this project book with "hope" for all the women facing this disease. The patterns cover slippers, hats, scarves, throws, a tote, socks and more. There are projects for every skill level. "Getting Started" shows you yarn substitution, special crochet stitches, finishing and blocking. If you want to crochet any of these items in another color...the book includes the colors that represent other types of cancers. Do you know someone who has cancer? They will spend long hours in doctors waiting rooms and receiving chemotherapy. Teaching them to crochet, will help pass the time and give them the feeling of accomplishment and control. --Paula Moliver, Hartford Knitting Examiner, March 2014
