October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States following skin cancer, which affects about 1 in 8 women in the United States. This year, Jimmy Beans is partnering with BreastCancer.org and Knitted Knockers to help bring awareness around the disease.
We're launching an EXCLUSIVE set of pink and purple knit blockers (lovingly called "Knocker Blockers") as well as both knit and crochet cowls and shawls! $5 from every cowl or shawl kit and set of Knocker Blockers will be donated towards the fight against breast cancer. A portion of sales on all of the pink products listed on this page will also be donated!
String Quintet Shawls
Is a shawl more your style? Our very own bean, Amy Gunderson designed two wonderful wraps using a String Quintet from Lorna's Laces. The best part? Both knit and crochet versions are available! The pattern for this shawl is free with the purchase of the yarn OR when you buy a set of the special edition Knocker Blockers.
Knocker Blockers were designed by the team at Jimmy Beans to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness month. This carefully curated palette of pink and purple knit blockers is limited edition, so once they're gone, they're gone!
