April is Autism Awareness Month
April 04, 2017
April is National Autism Awareness Month to promote awareness and acceptance of autism.
The puzzle pattern reflects the complexity of the autism spectrum. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of the people and families living with the condition.
In honor of National Autism Awareness Month, we'd like to introduce Ryan, Allison's nephew. Isn't he a cutie?
Allison's brother John, sister-in-law Sarah and Ryan live with autism daily.
Our wonderful community of knit and crochet designers have come up with many patterns to bring awareness to autism. Check out this beautiful Puzzle Scarf by Issa Garrison.
It's made in Tunisian crochet and uses worsted weight yarn. It's a free pattern - click here for the link. Check out other great patterns that help promote autism awareness on Ravelry.
