This simple DIY breast cancer awareness pin takes minutes to knit using the icord technique, and raises awareness for breast cancer!
- 1 x 25g 4 ply yarn (we used Elle Baby Soft in Soft Pink, 004)
- 2 x 3mm dpns
- yarn needle
- clothes pin
c/on c/off – cast on and cast off; dpns – double pointed needles; k – knit; sts – stitches
- C/on 4 sts. K one row. Do not turn work. Slide the sts to the end of the dpn, pull the yarn across the work and use your other dpn to k the next row. Continue in this fashion, sliding the work from side to side
- As you k, the sts form a neat tube. K until the piece measures about 8cm, or however long you please, and c/off. Using the yarn needle, thread the ends into the centre of the tube, and cut so the end is hidden inside the icord.
- Fold into the appropriate shape and keep in place with the pin. Wear with pride!
