Baby Hats for Charity

Baby Hats for Charity

Each year at the Knit-Out, someone asks where we donate the baby hats we collect and what kinds of hats the hospital asks for.

For years now, we have donated baby hats to the Pottstown Memorial Medical Center—about 50 a month. They ask that hats be knitted for newborns (10” round) or preemies (8” round), that they be made of washable yarn, and that they have no buttons, pom-poms or other detachable items that may endanger the babies.  We decide on styles and colors for the hats.

In past years, we have offered patterns for basic newborn hats—ribbed cuffs and rolled bands. This year, we thought you might enjoy sharing our favorite online patterns.

Here are websites for just a few:
