Charity Crocheting and a Free Pattern August 13, 2009

At this year’s CGOA Professional Development Day we had the chance to make items for Knit for Needs (http://knitsforneeds.blogspot.com/), a charity that distributes knitted and crocheted items to those in need across the United States. Lion Brand provided a variety of yarn for us to work with. I made up a premie sized hat with a small flower on it, and grabbed a snap shot with my cell phone before turning it in. I’ve decided to share my pattern on-line for all of you who take the time out of your busy lives to stitch for those in need.

If you do make this hat, please feel free to send me a picture or post a link to a pic of your finished item in the comment section. I’d love to see your work!
