Knit One Save One: Knit a Tiny Hat & Save a Life

Knit One Save One is a project of Save the Children. They are looking to collect 100,000 little hats to help keep newborns born around the world warm and save their lives. I was thrilled to take part in this project two years ago when it was called 'Caps to the Capitol.'

These tiny caps are quick, easy and fun to make. You can go the the Save the Children web site and download the free action kit, which includes patterns for knitters and crocheters of every skill level from just learning to expert.

I made a little video about it to help spread the word about the Knit One Save One project:

In these days of economic uncertainty around the world, here is a very simple thing that we can do to have a positive impact in the lives of precious newborns around the world.

So go to Knit One Save One and download the kit, make some caps and send in your letters and donations. It's a very easy thing to do, but it feels really good, and you will be doing your part to make this world a better place one tiny hat at a time.
