Today is the National Day of Giving! Here are some easy patterns that are great for giving to loved ones or as a special charity project. Happy stitching lovelies and keep up the amazing work you do for others!
8 Scarves to Give:
Scarves are ideal to make for others…no sizing needed (this makes them perfect for donating) and are essential for staying warm during cold winters. Do you have lots of yarn scraps? Consider making a striped scarf!
5 Hats to Give:
Hats are easy to make for all ages, from tiny newborn babies to adults…everyone needs some hand stitched love to keep their heads warm! Hats are fairly small projects too, allowing you to complete them in no time! Note: If donating baby hats to a hospital be sure to follow each hospital’s guidelines…most will require baby hats to be made in washable yarn, as they are sterilized before distribution.
3 Shawls to Give:
Shawls are a comforting and heartfelt gift…they are like a perpetual hug! Note if donating shawls to a nursing home or hospice, most require that they are no more than 4 feet long so they won’t get caught in wheelchair wheels. Washable and soft yarn is best too for donation.
