Over 11,000 hats!! 

OUTSTANDING! Thank you so much to all who have donated! Your generosity is FANTASTIC!

They have asked for newborn sized hats only. In addition to collecting hats for St. Joseph's Hospital, we are now also donating newborn hats and baby blankets to Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center in Hackensack, Wayne and Paterson. They support women and men in crisis pregnancies with material services, and social services (like childcare, housing, health care, etc.). These collections are ongoing!

These FREE knit and crochet patterns are basic (perfect for beginners) and use only small amounts of time and yarn. Yarn and pattern do not have to originate from Close Knit, but please make sure hats are SOFT (no wool please) and appropriate for newborns. Patterns are available in the store and at www.Ravelry.com. Here are a few suggestions:
