Purple baby hats

Our local children’s bookstore (Tall Tales Books) hosted a Knit-In on Saturday for anyone to drop in, have tea, and knit or crochet purple newborn hats in support of Preventing Shaken Baby Syndrome – the Period of Purple Crying. In the month of November, babies born in BC hospitals will receive a purple baby hat in an annual campaign to educate new parents that babies will cry during this period…a lot…

There will be another Knit In on Saturday Oct 15th, but if you can’t make the Knit-In, you can help by knitting (or crocheting) hats and dropping them off at the store anytime before Oct 19th. If you aren’t in Victoria (or even in BC), there are other locations listed on the National website

I’ve already knit a few of these patterns below, including a pamphlet I received from the Welcome Wagon baby shower 6 years ago…


Need more ideas?

Yeah, I got bored knitting the same hats over & over….so I came up with this – I’ll post the pattern later this week
