Get creative and raise vital awareness and funds by crocheting for cancer.

We’re calling on all budding crocheters to grab their favourite yarn and make a special periwinkle brooch.

We have the purple periwinkle as our symbol of hope because part of the flower is used as an ingredient in some lymphoma treatments.

Whether you are a complete beginner or have years of crocheting experience, anyone can use our periwinkle pattern* to make this eye-catching design.

You could ask your friends and family to buy one of your brooches in return for a small donation to the Lymphoma Association. We would love to see how you get on, so please share photos of your brilliant brooches with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

If you don’t fancy crocheting then we also have a periwinkle knitting pattern to create your own brooch.

Together we can crochet for cancer to raise vital awareness of lymphoma and help people coping with a diagnosis.

If you’d like us to send you a pack in the post, please email us at
