Today I spoke with Marie Hendriksen at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City about making crocheted hats for some of their patients. They would love to find a group to make hats for them, but have requested that the hats be for slightly older kids and NOT for newborns or preemies. Specifically, they would like for them to be for children who range in age from 6 months to 16 years. Those are the hats they need the most. She also mentioned that they have a need for hats for teenage boys with cancer, so making something for an older child would be great.
We also discussed types of hats. Below are pictures and links to hats they would absolutely love to have. If you would like more information about making hats for Primary Children’s, please email Marie Hendriksen at Marie.Hendriksen@imail.org. And if you know of any great patterns for knitters, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can add them to our list. Thank you!!
