American Heart Association seeks knitters to make red baby hats

Share

The American Heart Association is seeking volunteers who can knit and crochet special hats for newborns in hospitals across the country. They're hoping to give out thousands of red hats to babies to raise awareness about heart health and congenital heart defects. The hats are distributed to babies with and without heart defects.

The American Heart Association is looking for volunteer knitters to help out a good cause. Go to http://www.heart.org/littlehatsbighearts to find knitting patterns, participating AHA offices and more.

Many babies born in February will receive red caps as part of the "Little Hats, Big Hearts" project, which draws attention to heart disease. For any questions about Little Hats, Big Hearts in CT, please contact Lisa Neff, Lisa.Neff@heart.org or 203-295-2954.

Organizers are asking for red cotton or acrylic yarn that is medium to heavy-weight and machine washable/dryable.

The organisers also ask that volunteers don't add bows and buttons as they can come off the hats and be unsafe for the babies.

Since the program started in 2014, more than 90,000 hats have been distributed to families in hospitals in 42 states, according to a the AHA website.
