An amazing 55g of 4 ply yarn was all it took to knit these little bonnets for the Knit For Winter 2015 campaign. Sunrise Senior Living organises annual campaigns and this year opted to help First Touch which supports sick and premature babies at St. George's Hospital in London.
Around 60,000 babies are born prematurely in the UK every year and 600 of these are born at St. George's Hospital. Keeping them warm is very important and the hats and blankets that will be made by many knitters will be invaluable. If you want to get involved, there is still time this winter. You can download the knitting patterns here.
Each hat takes only a few hours to knit and they are a wonderful way to use up small scraps of yarn. I was able to knit one of each size in the pattern with just 55g of yarn.
I knitted these in the peace and quiet of the last couple of weeks. This is my first post of what looks like being a hectic 2016 for me. Happy New Year to everyone!
