Knit One, Save One

We are collecting preemie caps for Knit One, Save One: A Campaign to Save Millions of Babies. This effort is sponsored by Save the Children and Warm Up America!

You can read more about it here.

You can download an Action Kit here. The Action Kit contains Easy Patterns to Knit or Crochet, as well as more information on the program.

Join me and knit some sweet little preemie caps that will go to babies all over the world! These babies often have low birthweights, so the caps need to be smaller than we are used to making. A circumference of 9-11” is ideal. Use any smooth, washable yarn.

I'll be giving the caps to Kathy at the Portland Knitter's Guild at the December meeting. She'll package up all the caps she collects and send them in for us. The deadline to turn in your caps at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop is Sunday, December 7.
