How much yarn is needed for this project?
I see the deadline is far gone past, but I want you to know I am going to use your pattern to donate the hats to our enlisted servicemen and women overseas. I “inherited” a lot of browns and tans and olive green yarn with nothing to do with it all. Thanks, I now have my own mission.
I see I have missed the deadline for this. Can I still send hats? I have made many hats here for the homeless for the winter and would like to donate half to your project.
Project Hope isn’t’ accepting any more hats, as they are leaving for Colombia in just a couple of days. We will be doing this project again next spring. 🙂
if they do not accept them, we are collecting Hats and scarfs for the Dixie Fire people whom lost their homes and all their clothes and belongings. Hand knitted or crochet hats and such are very welcomed. feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.

I just mailed 3 hats for your mission. I didn’t get a picture, but I hope they help.
I’m sorry. I just signed up and now see that the hats need to be sent out TODAY. Will you have another drive that I can participatein?
Next Spring! 🙂
I signed up to make approx 5 hats for the homeless and I’ve been I’ll and unable to complete the designated amount I was to make. Will there be another date you will be sending hats away for the homeless project?
Next Spring 🙂
Drat 🙁 Today is May 15th and I have just discovered your blog 🙂 I will keep a look out in case you do something similar for 2016. However, I knit more than I crochet so hope knitted beanies will be acceptable.
I’m sending my hats in the mail today!! Thanks for this wonderful opportunity to use our skills for good! It’s been an honor!
I don’t know if I can get them done and mailed by the 15th as this coming week is filled with driving, graduations, and family events. I wll try however to send at least a couple and will definitely participate next year.
Happy to serve God however I can, mailed in my caps today.
I’ll be mailing 4 love this project! Anything to help spread the name of Jesus!!
I will make the hats.
Also I’d like to mention that I love your pattern for the Mason jar covers! I made one last week. I hope to make several more to add beauty to my Mason collection. Thank you for sharing your design. I love it!
I finished my first mens’ beanie cap today. I used I Love This Yarn in navy blue. I enjoyed it very much.
I have some denim blue colored yarn. Would this color work for the hats? Just checking before I get started!
Those pattern is extremely small not sure how it could fit adult head. I made two and they can no way fit an adult.
I made one and had the same issue. I increased my hook size to a j and then did a row of 2 sc and sc in next 6 stitches after the row of 2 sc and sc in next 5 stitches. It fits my hubby great. The small one fits my 3 year old:)
I am working on my “3rd” hat and I think the pattern is great.
Rows 1-21 are worked in half double crochet (HDC or hdc) . Rows 22-25 are worked in SC in each St around. This makes a larger hat and it is long enough to turn up if needed. HDC also adds more streach in the finished hat. I hope this is helpful. Loxieloug
Thats the same problem Im having!! Lolol Im not sure who they are sending these super short hats too!!! Lolol
My daughter works in DC. One holiday season I made hats and scarves, placed them in a zip lock bag With a small Christian tract. when she got off the train in the district she handed a package to a homeless, cold person.
We all were blessed.
I would love to help but I cannot get either of those brands in Australia What ply should I use?
Well done all of you! Here in Kent, England, we knit hats and scarves for the Seafarers’ Mission. We import so much (more than we should) & the seafarers are poorly paid, far from their families and find our English weather very trying. We make brightly coloured beanies, so they can be seen easily on deck. X
When do you need the hats by?
