A Free Pattern For A Good Cause

Make one for yourself and one for someone in need.

I received a request by a wonderful gal named Jennifer who works with the You Are Not Alone Cancer Comfort Ministry. They deliver packages to cancer patients that give comfort to the body, mind and soul. Read more about the mission and care packages they give out by visiting their website.


Jennifer had asked me to make a video tutorial for a pattern she uses for the beanies she donates, but she needed it for an absolute beginner. You see, she has lots of friends who want to donate, but don’t know how to crochet.

So I gladly helped out and made a super detailed video.

This tutorial is perfect for the person who has never crocheted. It takes all the stitches extremely slow and walks you through every pattern instruction.

The pattern was supplied by Jennifer, and I just supplied the instruction.

Feel free to use this pattern to make beanies for anyone you like, but consider sending at least one to the Cancer Comfort Ministry. You can send them directly to:

You Are Not Alone Comfort Ministry
Attn: John Gronnel
30151 Avenida de las Banderas, Suite 100
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688

or visit their website and see how you can help out in other ways as well.

P.S. You don’t have to send just this beanie, you can make any of your favorite patterns and send them to the Comfort Ministry.
