Cozy Hats For Cozy Babies

Pinterest

400X150AllFreeCrochet has a “tiny” announcement. We are teaming up with Bernat to sponsor a charity drive for the labor and delivery unit at Northwest Community Hospital.

 

Crocheting and knitting is a great way to put your talent to use, especially when it’s going to someone in need. Every year there are over 3,000 babies born at NCH and each baby goes home with a handmade crochet baby hat or knit hat. Whether the baby is preemie or full term, each baby gets a hat. It’s important to keep baby warm and healthy in their first adventure home! Baby hats are easy to make even for the beginner.

The charity drive will run from February 11 to March 11. Once you have completed your baby hat, you can ship it to the address listed below. You can make one hat or five hats; each hat is extremely appreciated. We will then hand-deliver your hats to Northwest Community Hospital. Before doing so, however, we will randomly select one (1) winner to be the recipient of a fabulous yarn prize package!

  1. Culleen Mandigo says

    yes, I will be making a baby hat (or 2 or 3). I’m currently working on some baby projects so doing this is easy.

  2. Traci Sumner says

    Yeah – guidance for the next project and I’ve got a lonely skein of mint green that can finally have a purpose! Count me in!

  3. Heidi says

    I wanted to send one of my hand spun alpaca/ angora baby hats but it has to be 3 ply baby yarn? Nothing softer than my yarn….can I send one?

  4. Deborah Cook says

    I will definitely crochet a hat, probably more than one. I recently bought a bag of baby yarn at Goodwill, what a good use of that yarn

  5. Pat Collins says

    I am helping my neighbor make hats for the homless for her church. I think I can take time out to make a couple of baby hats. Very worthy cause.

  6. christine says

    I’m so glad there are so many of you wanting to make hats, this is great!

    As for the materials used, they MUST meet the specifications listed above. 3 ply baby yarn must be used.

    Thanks, and we can’t wait to see the hats!

    Christine, Editorial Community Manager for AllFreeCrochet.com

  7. Evelyn Overman says

    I will be more than happy to make a hat for the cause. And to think I might win yarn… GREAT.
    Thank you for supporting this cause.

  8. Linda says

    I will make some hats for this charity. I do already make hats for Jackson here in Miami so a few for you will be fun, and the babies look so cute in them.

  9. Leslie Johnson says

    Yes, I will be making a hat. A group of co-workers and I did this a few years ago for hospitals in Appalachia. Crochet is so rewarding when you can give it away for such a wonderful cause.

  10. says

    I will crochet as many as possible unfortunatly all i have is girly colors :( will see if i hv some green and blue somewhere for boys as well cant wait to suprise u all with ma luv of making hats for newborn… my child was a preemie child and i had hard time with hats and nw i make hats for near by hospital as well buh i will share some with you as well and i m sure you will love them.. dont forget to visit ma page :https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Evas_Art_Wrks/490326754320748
    on facebook for more exiting things i do :) creativity is ma wrld as well 😀

  11. Denice says

    Can someone please tell me a brand that is 3 ply baby yarn? I’ve been looking everywhere and all the baby yarn I’ve seen is 8 ply. thanks

  12. Joy Sharpe says

    Already have plans to make baby hats to donate to CVMC in my county so one more for another hospital can’t hurt me. I can help someone’s baby though….

  13. Linda says

    Yes, I have been looking for somewhere to donate items I make. I love to have something to do. I will send you 1 or more

  14. Terri L says

    I have a couple made already, preemie sized. I can make some larger ones too! Would love to donate them for this wonderful cause!

  15. Pat Hansen says

    The only baby yarn I can find is in DK weight. I also have some sock yarn (size 1, fingering, but 4 ply). I can’t find anything anymore in only 3 ply. Does anyone else have this problem? What do we do here?

  16. Ann says

    I already make hats to donate to Delaware HeadHuggers, but will certainly make a couple for this cause, since you are offering a prize of yarn I can use to make blankets to donate! Thanks.

  17. Kim Sherwood says

    I love to crochet for my family.I have 5 grown children & so far they have given me 6 beautiful grandchildren & another one on the way.I love making baby hats.

  18. Selena says

    You’ve presented an avenue for me to do two things I love–crocheting and giving! I will donate at least one, but my goal is to do three.

  19. Darlene Lehman says

    I will make one, hopefully it comes out alright. Hats are not my usual projects of choice (afghans are!) But, we shall see…

  20. Joann M. Fournier says

    I’ll be happy to make some baby hats and send them right out. I’m always making hats and mittens for my grand kids and the homeless in my home area. We all have to do what we can for others. Thank you for the opportunity to help.

    Joann M. Fournier

  21. Robin Johnson says

    Would love to share with someone who will be able to use what I make. Is there any place in Ca. to send to as well?

  22. Carole Colquehoun says

    I’ll be happy to knit and crochet as many as I can afford to mail. I think all infants need to have hats to keep their little heads warm.

  23. Sali Colburn says

    Can’t wait to send off some of the cute hats I have been able to do. I am retired and have time to do this and love it.

  24. Nancy Lerohl says

    Just copied some new baby hat patterns and can’t wait to send you some new little hats. I already crochet for a local NIC unit here in MN and would love to contribute. Count me in :)

  25. (Mrs.) Dale Leonard says

    I make baby hats for the NICU’s at two hospitals in Tallahassee. I’ll be happy to save a few for this wonderful project.

  26. Mary Baxter says

    I have made many hats for adult chemo patients so for a change I’m looking forward to making some for the babies.

  27. susan says

    If you can’t knit or crochet, a couple local Girl S Scouts have a how-to video to make baby hats from t-shirt sleeves. Great for the kids to do.

  28. Donna says

    I will make some. I have always wanted to make something for a charity what better than to make baby hats. Those angels are gifts from Heaven and they deserve the best we can give them.

  29. Judi says

    I would be honored to make hat for baby’s in need. And I would love to work with this yarn. Thank you for having this contest.

    Judi

  30. Minerva says

    I just saw this message. I will try to make as many as I can from today to the end date. Thank you for the opportunity to contribute.

  31. Pat Hansen says

    I just checked the Loops & Threads brand on Ravelry. The only baby yarn is Snuggly Wuggly Baby Sport, which is 8 ply. They do not carry a 3 ply. I did a search, and nothing came up for it. This is proving harder than we thought. It is possible to have 4 ply even in fingering weight yarn. Are you sure this has to be 3 ply, or just baby or fingering or sport weight?

  32. Rayna Cammack says

    I’m so excited! Found a huge ball of Bernat baby yarn at the Goodwill yesterday. I was wondering what to do with it! Logged on and saw the contest, I believe this is a sign! LOL!

  33. Jane Byrnes says

    I belong to a group in Pittsburgh Pa. We have just finished 22 hats to donate to a hospital here, glad to see others are doing the same Thank You

  34. Julieta says

    I will make several, I will gladly donate the hats. I don’t care about the price, I just love babies and I think this idea is wonderfull.

  35. Amanda Edgeworth says

    My son and daughter in-law had their son premature, he was born on December 14 and due in the end of February to the beginning of March, at birth he weighed 2 pounds 3 ounces now weighs 4 pounds 11 ounces. I have been crocheting little for him and other babies at the prenatal ICU in Fresno California. I would love to try your pattern and send some hats their as well.

  36. Annie Mangelli says

    What a wonderful cause. I enjoy making projects for others of all varieties and cant think of better way to share. Consider hats on the way!!

  37. Gloria says

    I have been making hats for more than 20 years. Each year I make at least 100 hats for homeless men, women, children and babies. I am going to make some for this organization also. I love doing it and will continue as long as I can. I am 75 year of age.

  38. Susan says

    Excellent. I honestly have baby hats that I’ve made just sitting around the house! I love to make them but have no where for them to go. My question is, can I send them even if they are not baby yarn? I have several that are cotton, which is much nicer in the summer months.

  39. Denice Hicks says

    Still no one can advise what yarn they are using?? I’m in California and I don’t think I’ve ever seen 3ply yarn. Plus it has to be baby yarn. Please advise, I’d love to help out.

  40. Mathilda Said says

    Will definitely make some. We are in the beautiful season of lent, prayers, fasting and almsgiving. What a perfect time to help. God bless

  41. Catrinia says

    I would love too. Always up to help other and spread the warmth of love. I make hats all the time for friends and family. I’m so up for this.

  42. christine says

    I LOVE how enthusiastic everyone is!

    To answer some questions:

    3 ply baby yarn OR 3 ply sock and sweater yarn can be used. Babies are very sensitive which is why they have these specifications.

    Yes, the hats can be loom knitted as long as the size is appropriate for a newborn.

    Thanks and we can’t wait to see what you send in!

  43. Pat Hansen says

    The problem is that very little yarn is 3 ply these days. It is all made differently. Even the name brand baby and thin yarns at DK or fingering yet have 4 to 8 ply yarn. I have checked Ravelry on these, and am ready to tear my hair out. I have sock yarn, but THAT is 4 ply, too! What do we do here?

  44. Carole Salvas says

    I have been making baby blankets and hats for our local hospital. I would love to make some cozy hats for newborns. So count me in I’ll start ASAP.

  45. Joyce E Spogis says

    I have been looking for a new charity to do this year and this is the perfect project at the perfect timing for me. You can count on a few from me, maybe more. Love to donate!

  46. Kathleen says

    I can’ wait to get started. I’ve been wanting to do this for some time now. Now I have a real reason to get started. And I can continue making them now that I have some place to send them.
    Anything for Gods little blessings when they come into the world.

  47. Leanne Crawford says

    I will be making five hats. I love to support good causes like this. Thank you for letting me have this opportunity to participate.

  48. Joyce Duemling says

    I think this is going to be a great fundraiser! I love babies! I will make some for them as your pattern I printed out looks super easy! ( I hope I can find 3-ply yarn) I will look for some tomarrow with all the people that responded I think it’s going to be alot of hats coming your way. Crochet mom

  49. Patty says

    Curious, what MUST is only be 3ply? and what yarn is 3 ply? Am I just lost or would any baby weight work fine? I want to join but, I don’t have 3 ply

  50. Frances C says

    Hi Christine,
    I love making items for babies, so I will forward a bunch of caps to you. In addition, I will send the information to the members of my group Sisters Interacting Through Stitches, and collect their caps when we meet on 2/23/13.

  51. Kandy Rose says

    I will be happy to make some hats for the new born babies. It’s one way i can give back. Thank you for the opportunity
    to help.

  52. Michelle Lester says

    I found Bernat Baby Yarn in 3 ply at my local WalMart, very inexpensive. It is the only 3 ply I have found and it is by Bernat!!! Since they are sponsoring, this makes sense. I have 4 hats made so far from the skein.

  53. Denice Hicks says

    Hi Michelle, was the yarn called Bernat Baby Sparkle? Per the email I received from Bernat, the only baby yarn that they carry that is 3ply is the Bernat Baby sparkle and I’ve never seen this at my local Walmart.

  54. Pat Hansen says

    I checked Ravelry. The new baby yarn by Bernat is actually 4 ply fingering. You know, the way yarn is spun now, this type should be comparable to the old 3 ply. Maybe someone should check this out?

  55. Shannon says

    Hey, I work at Rainbow Home and we have recently started a knitting klub. I am beginning teaching the Klub members how to use the knitting looms. I understand this is not part of the requirements however we are looking for places to donate the hats we are making. Rainbow Homes is non-profit supported living for adults with cognitive disAbalities.

  56. Rayna Cammack says

    I also found Bernat 3ply baby yarn at my local Wal-mart. They had white and a pastel multi-colored yarn. I believe it was 6.98 for a big skein.:)

  57. Michelle Lester says

    The first skein I bought is called Bernat Softee Baby, and I got another tonight that is Bernat Baby Sport. Both are 3 ply, the first is softer.

  58. Pat Hansen says

    There is a difference between the number of plies in the yarn (how many strands spun together) and the weight classification. The US has always gone by the weight classification. Where 4 represents worsted weight, 3 represents light worsted or DK, 2 represents sport or fine, 1 as superfine (sock), and 0 as lace weight. I am more and more of the opinion now that it is the WEIGHT of the yarn the hospital is considered about; 3 being just the right one for baby. Even Bernat has their baby yarns at this weight. This is probably what the hospital means, and what most type of yarn the donations will be made of.

  59. Helen says

    The specifications do not make sense.

    3-ply yarn is an old term for light weight baby yarn that would typically be knitted on size 0-3 needles.

    3 ply as a spinning term (number of plies in the construction of the yarn) is unclear – few manufactured yarns are constructed of three plies.

    Size 6 or 7 needles are too large for fingering yarn, and again, over specific. Perhaps a “knitted gauge of x stitches per inch” might be clearer.

    The combination of 3-ply yarn and size 6 or 7 needles would only make sense for lace shawls, not baby hats.

  60. says

    I have a charity that I started about 6 years ago. I teach others to loom knit and crochet. We make hats and toys and I deliver them to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus Ohio.
    I will opt out of this one as I make and give all of mine to NCH.

  61. Linda says

    I will make as many as I can. I was making hats for the homeless in my city but will make these baby hats for the next week. Then go back to homeless hats thanks for doing this for the babies.

  62. Ina Reichel says

    The specifications make no sense at all. If yarn is soft or not depends on a lot of things, least of all on they number of plies or the thickness. Fiber content would be much more important.

    Also it’s not really specified if 3-ply is meant as in thickness (which is a thin fingering weight) or as number of plies in the yarn.

    Requiring a specific hook or needle size makes no sense either. How are you going to check? Also, different people achieve different gauge using the same needle. A specific gauge might make more sense.

    Lastly the combination of a 3-ply (as in weight) yarn on size 6 or 7 needles for most knitters will result in netting, not in a fabric suitable for a hat.

  63. Denice Hicks says

    I have to agree with Pat. I think the “3” is weight classification for the yarn, not how many plies. And size 3 would be perfect for baby hats. I’ve read comments that people are using Bernat yarns to make their hats but based on the email that I received from Bernat, the only yarn that they sell that is “3 ply” is Bernat Baby Sparkle yarn. No others. Since there is so much confusion on the type of yarn we can use on this sadly, I will opt out of this charity drive. If anyone knows of others, please let me know. I would love to donate my crocheting and knitting items for good causes. My email address is xxdenicexx@gmail.com. Thank you.

  64. Gladys Lopez says

    Hello,yes i would like to be add if i can, i have two hats made,i will send them in soon as i can.Iwould love to do this.

    Signed:
    Gladys Lopez

  65. Joann says

    I’ve been crocheting baby hats for the neo-natal unit at local hospital for around 9 yrs. Will be sending at least 2 for this very worthy cause.

  66. Terri says

    I will send one to help out. I know how hard it is to keep baby hat available in the hospitals. I am making them for the babies in Marshell, MI my daughter is an nurse there and they are always running out. More than willing to help and the extra yarn would be nice in making more for the hospital if I were lucky enough to win.

  67. Betty Plemmons says

    Mailed my package today. You should receive them on Tuesday. What an honor it is to be able to help with this project. God Bless!!

  68. Denise says

    Working on one now. As to discussions about yarn weight — In my yarn stash I found a Caron Sports Weight yarn that says 3-ply on the label. Its from nearly 25 years ago! Although the weight is right, it is made of Orlon acrylic — not the softest texture. Wouldn’t want to put it on an infant’s head. Hope the specifications will be clarified. These seem out of date.

  69. Shirley says

    Is this just for now or do you have this going on all along? Hope I can do one to send in time. Can’t crochet as fast as I use to, but will try.

  70. Connie says

    I will be glad to make at least one hat. I have been looking for a way to pay it forward when someone kind made a hat which was placed on our little ones head. He was born premature and unfortunately did not make it. This grandma was broken hearted but the little hat made him looked just like a little angel,

  71. Shirley Berntson says

    I have lots of baby yarn left from making multicolored items for grandchildren. Will make as many as I can in the time left.

  72. Aurora says

    I have several small hats done already but they are 4 ply so I guess Ill keep looking for someone who wants them. Ill see if I can pick up some 3ply tomorrow and do one or two for you.

  73. Michelle Lester says

    Both of the Bernat baby yarns I got are 3 strands/plys and rated a ‘3’ class. I unraveled the end to make sure before I bought them. They work up to perfect sized hats with a G hook. I’ve made several now. The Softee Baby is by far the softer of the two yarns but is is slippery and the threads separate around the hook making the going slower. I’m having fun.

  74. Mary says

    I have made baby items & donated them to the hosptal where my duaghter was born.I will gladly make some infant hats for this cause.

  75. C Collins says

    I too have a number already made and would love to send them. If you do a bootie one as well, just let me know, I have probably 30 pairs of them too.

  76. Marianne Janet Walton says

    I ALREADY HAVE 5 MADE:-):-)
    GONNA KEEP GOING TO THE POINT OF MAILING:-)I HAVE SO MUCH YARN AND I JUST STARTED CROCHETING A COUPLE MONTHS AGO AND THIS IS A GREAT CAUSE:-):-)

  77. Ann Rosine says

    I just finished a huge crochet donation project for the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation at Pine Ridge S.D.
    I made about 75 crocheted hats and/or scarfs for babies to adult. They have 400 + kids in the Foster Care Program. I tossed in a few afghans too. So, now I’m in that crafter phase (done with that, what next)
    I will be sending one girl and one boy hat.

  78. RUTH RYAN says

    I will make a hat maybe more, i have healthissues so depends on that factor on more but I will do at least one where do I send it?

  79. MESHELL says

    I am sending two tomorrow, thanks it was fun doing them today and I enjoyed the thought that some little person will find comfort in them.

  80. Anabel Ortega says

    Need to check my yarns but yes I will make at least 2 and I will try to get my friend and daughter involved as well.

  81. Doris Shultz says

    I have one made already that was from left over yarn from making a baby bunting. Will make a few more with other left over yarn. Great cause. Will they keep taking hats even after the March date?

  82. Tricia says

    Love making baby hats easy to do and will do anything for charity. Have some hats made will be sending them shortly.

  83. says

    I wish I would have known about this earlier than two days ago. I’ve got one hat made, another started and hope to get at least a few more done before the March 11 deadline. I’m glad to help out!

  84. Carlee says

    To: Christine, Editorial Community Manager, AllFreeCrochet
    With all the replies committed to making hats, what will you do with all of them? One place surely can’t use them all. I made scarves for the Special Olympics. Those folks discontinued the project because they had left-overs from the past three years taking up warehouse space. Why didn’t they give to homeless shelters, etc? They would never reply. What will you do if inundated with baby caps? I think it is a great project and would love to participate, but have reservations.

  85. says

    Hi Carlee,

    We’re so excited so many people are willing to make baby hats. With that said, the hospital delivers over 3,000 babies a year and we have received nowhere near that number. I am not concerned about getting too many baby hats. Our drive goes until March 11 and we will wait a week for the remaining hats to arrive. After that, you’re more than welcome to send them directly to the hospital as they are very grateful.

    If you want to make a baby hat (and this goes for everyone), the hat MUST use a soft baby yarn as babies are very sensitive.

    Thanks so much,

    Christine, Editorial Community Manager for AllFreeCrochet.com

  86. Amanda says

    Hi Christine, Editorial Community Manager, AllFreeCrochet,
    I read the knitting pattern and I think it could be improved a bit. For example, how many stitches to the inch are you looking for to get a hat that measures what circumference? Not everyone knows what circumference a baby hat should be. Also, a description of how to seam a hat would be helpful for beginners. Additional optional instructions on how to make pom poms and how to attach might be good as well. And finally a picture and/or diagram would do wonders. Just want to make sure you get the best hats from the most people possible! Thanks for organizing something local to Chicago; my stitching group is always looking for charitable projects.

  87. Marlene says

    My Mom & I made 20+ hats for the premmies @ Madison Hospital….I believe this will become a tradition

  88. Fran Feidner says

    I’lll gladly help out. I’ve been crocheting for charities for years to my local hospital. Baby items especially.

  89. Doris Shultz says

    Have 4 hats, all different sizes, completed. Will get them off this weekend. Will this address accept hats after 3/11?

  90. Sharman B says

    Made a few hats. Will be sending them off tomorrow. This is a wonderful thing you are doing. I’m sure the parents are very pleased to receive these hats.

  91. Joyce says

    I got so excited when I saw the website doing such a worthwhile project. I am on disability & am trying to keep busy on my good days with meaniful projects. I will be mailing out at least
    5 hats tomorrow. I would like to try to get a few more done to add to the shipment. If there
    are any other items hospitals need for babies, or any age I would be glad to help as much as I can. Years ago I worked in a Daycare, it was the best job of my life…..these precious lives gave me so many great days!
    March 5,2013

  92. Vickie T. says

    is it ok that i use 4ply 100% acrylic, Carson Simply Soft yarn or Red Heart 4 ply worsted yarn? Cause I recently interested in knitting baby hat for donation, but didn’t know much about which yarns to use.

  93. Frances C says

    Hi Christine,

    I completed 25 hats, collected one from a friend, and today I mailed them to the listed address. Now, I can return to making lap blankets for oncology patients and vets.

  94. Elma Senior Center,Elma WA says

    The seniors at the Elma Senior Center
    have been working hard on their Tuesday
    Craft Night to make as many baby hats
    as they can. We will miss the deadline because
    we don’t meet again until next Tuesday but will
    send them anyway, hope you can wait to distribute
    them with the rest of those sent in. We will be shipping
    them on Wednesday.

  95. Gail says

    Have completed several caps and will be mailing tomorrow. Such a great opportunity to share my God given talent of knitting and crocheting..Thanks for providing this venue.

  96. Sandy Rhodes says

    I am sending one off to you today Sorry I did not know sooner. If you do this again Please let me know. Have a great day & thanks for what you do.

  97. says

    I have 12 baby hats to donate for your cause. We are all excited but didn’t make as many as I wanted to. Could you please em me the next time so that I can have enough time to make as many as I set my goal for. I got my friend and daughter involve and my daughter even learn how to use the knitting loom just for this event. I will be mailing them out to you today because I didn’t have the address and your website was out all weekend.
    Sincerely;
    Anabel

  98. Vickie T. says

    does it have to be 3ply yarn? I have 4ply worsted yarns only. By the way, please let me know if you have something like this again. I would love to do for charity but now it is too late to send hats in.
    thanks!

  99. ELAINE T (ET CROCHETS) says

    I mailed 15 baby caps today that are expected to arrive on Friday. This was a fun project to work on. I usually don’t work with sport weight yarn but was able to find some Bernat Softee Baby yarn on sale in 3 different colors – soft lilac, pink marl and prince pebbles (a white, lime, gray and aqua ombre). I needed to modify the pattern that I used so the caps would be the correct size for a preemie or newborn baby. After I made the adjustments to the pattern, it was no problem working up 5 caps in each of the 3 yarn colors that I purchased. I received a lot of compliments from friends when I showed them the completed caps. I am sure the people who receive them will appreciate the hand made needle crafts.
