Forget Me Not flower
pattern is a tribute to all women who have struggled against breast cancer,
those who have struggled and survived and those who have not. Forget-me-nots are
delicate looking flowers, but this delicacy belies their strength and tenacity.
They are beautiful in the wildest and most wasted of places. They survive. They
endure. They come back. The specific tributes you see in the background of this
pattern are from the family members of women who have fought breast cancer. If
you would like your own tribute added to this pattern, please write to Nora
Bellows of Noni at
Nora shares her inspiration for this pattern..."I was inspired
to make this flower when Dorret Conway contacted me from England with a request.
She wanted to wear flowers I designed on a decorated bra in a special walk
called the Moon Walk, a breast cancer research fundraising walk organized by
WalktheWalk, and she wanted to publish the pattern for free on the internet. I
decided to do one better: design a special flower and then donate all my pattern
sales profits to breast cancer research through the WalktheWalk organization and
the Susan G. Komen foundation in the USA. My hope is that women all over the US
and Europe will wear the Noni Forget-Me-Not at breast cancer fundraising events,
decorating bras, t-shirts, sneakers, and flip flops, knowing that every pattern
purchase will help the fight."
The flowers you see on the pattern cover will decorate a bra
that will also help the fight as a donation to a fundraising auction in October
2007 for LifeBridge Health Department. I hope you will buy this pattern (and
knit lots of flowers) because by doing so you are helping to raise funds and
awareness about breast cancer.
