Knit Michigan

We are now a Knit Michigan Collection Center. Some of you may have been familiar with the mid-winter event called Knit Michigan, where money was raised in support of cancer patients and their families and chemo caps were collected. While the event has been discontinued, the need for cancer patient comfort items continues. A group of Michigan yarn shops, including ours, has banded together to help meet this need.

Here’s how you can help: Knit or crochet a chemo cap or Knitted Knockers™ (breast prostheses), or make pillows and fleece blankets for the infusion room. Patterns and instructions are free and can be found at When they are done, bring them in to the store and we will help you tag them and then they will be sent to Knit Michigan and distributed to cancer units around the state. If you have a question about what yarns are best to use for chemo caps, ask us, or look for the shelf tag identifying the yarn and chemo cap friendly. Knitted Knockers™ need to be made from very specific yarns, check the pattern on Ravelry for details.

Have a need for a chemo cap or other comfort item? Let us know and we will help.
