Knit, Purl and Save a Newborn

An article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune this morning wrote about this opportunity for charity knitting (one of my interests). Two million newborns die each year in the first 24 hours of life in the developing world. A knit cap can keep an underweight baby warm. So Save the Children is asking volunteers to knit or crochet a cap for a newborn by January. The goal is 75,000 caps to be sent to Malawi and Bangladesh. The number is in honor of Save the Children's 75th anniversary next year. To download patterns and learn more visit

They have two knit and two crochet patterns on their site. I'll make a couple, but I like the pattern in the Community Knitting book from Cottage Creations. Thank you for posting this.
