2019 Charity Collection

This year the Homespun Yarn Party and Lovelyarns are collecting knit and crocheted hats and scarves for the 500 Hats Project. Let’s wow them with our generosity!

The 500 Hats Project is a year-round effort; we encourage stitchers from all over to contribute hand-made hats which will warm the heads of elementary and middle-school children in a selected Baltimore City school or program each winter. If you would like to participate in the 500 Hats Project, please knit or crochet a hat in any yarn, any child-size and bring it to the Yarn Party charity table!  Any style is welcome but there is a pattern here to get you started.

There is no deadline for hats as this is an annual project so you can still contribute after the event - just bring your finished hats to Lovelyarns in Hampden (Baltimore, MD).  They are happy to donate yarn if you do not have stash you would like to use.

You can also grab your knitting needles and/or your crochet hooks, and come and knit/crochet with us. You are welcome to bring your own yarn, however we will provide charity yarn for you to work with. We will have a couple of knit and crochet charity hats and scarves going at the charity table. Please come by and add a few rows!

Additionally, if you’re looking to destash, we will be collecting yarn for charity projects and charitable organizations throughout the Baltimore/DC metro area. If you have other finished objects to donate we'll find them a good home.

Photos of last year's donations can be seen here in our Ravelry Group!
