Mary is a little girl I see playing outside at recess. I noticed that she and many other children don’t wear winter hats. Checking with a few of the agencies that work with children at risk I found that, in many cases, hats are a luxury that some families cannot afford.
When I was a little girl my grandmother knit helmets for all her grandchildren. She was amazing to watch as her four needles flew round and round and then suddenly there would be a hat. Sometimes she would tell us stories about Br’er Rabbit or when she was growing up in Scotland. Perhaps this is why I care so much about hats for kids.
Hats can be any bright color, any pattern, girls, boys, pre-school to pre-teen whatever you would like to make.
