Child’s Gusto 10 Rolled Brim Hat
In conjunction with the Great Escape Knitting for Charity workshop, Cathy L has connected with an organization (The Knitting Connection in Medford, MA) that has a group of knitters who knit hats for children in need. The organization also accepts donations of new unused knitted (and crocheted) hats and yarn. The donated hats and yarn MUST be 100% acrylic.
Cathy will be collecting donations of new unused knitted (and crocheted) hats and yarn. In addition to being 100% acrylic, the yarn must be at least a full skein – sufficient to make a complete hat.
