Charitable knitting…I’m pretty sure that’s been a thing as long as there have been knitters. Almost every knitter and crocheter I know gives a certain portion of what they make for causes they support.
Personally, I love knitting for preemies, for hospital newborns, for homeless shelters, for anyone who needs a wearable hug in the form of a shawl, for people fighting cancer…ok. I love to knit, full stop.
I love it even more when I can do some good with knitting.
This pattern is basically a quick doodle in yarn, and is my go-to for donated hats. I’ve not taken time to write it down until now.
However, I’m on a huge drive to make as many hats as possible for Syrian refugees being settled in Canada – as are many knitters and crocheters all across this country.
A fellow knitter asked for a copy of my pattern, and I thought I’d share with everyone 🙂
It’s absolutely free of charge, and is also available on Ravelry. It’s available with no restrictions. I do ask that you not sell the pattern…and while you’re free to sell hats knit from this pattern, I’d love it if you’d consider paying it forward by donating at least one hat to a cause near and dear to your heart.
Not sure where you’d like to donate? There’s an awesome Charity Finder here, by Lion Brand yarn: http://www.lionbrand.com/charityConnection.html
