Volunteer Knitters

Thank you

for your interest in supporting our project by knitting some of our tiny white hats.

You will find the knitting pattern and instructions below.

All we ask is that you

knit with love.

Each hat goes to a grieving mother who will never get to hold her baby, but will hold your knitted hat very often over the years as she remembers and often as she sheds tears for her loss.

Each hat is attached to a white ribbon and a card with the verse:

A little hat I never wore
But now I send to you
For every Mum should have a gift
From their Baby born too soon.
