Jillian Moreno, co-author of Big Girl Knits and editor of KnittySpin Magazine has whipped up an important scarf for this week’s CRAFT pattern podcast. Jillian’s “Boobie Scarf” was featured along with 4 other patterns for Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Knitty.com back in the Fall of 2004. Jillian says, “Sometimes I need to be very literal. Life and death is a good reason to be blunt. Love your breasts, protect your breasts, check your breasts. If wearing a string of boobies around your neck doesn’t remind you to do a self check, what will? It’s also a great ice breaker, ‘What’s that on your scarf?’ ‘Why they’re breasts. Have you done your self-check this month, or gotten your mammogram?’”
Help spread the word for Breast Cancer Awareness and keep yourself warm and cozy in the process with the “Boobie Scarf”.
