Knit Red Newborn Hats for American Heart Month!

LoveKnitting |

Living a heart healthy life is important for adults and children alike, and to remind people, February is the official American Heart Month! Here’s how you can help:

The American Heart Association and The Children’s Heart Foundation are partnering up to celebrate American Heart Month by helping moms live a heart healthy life – not just for themselves, but for their newborns, too! The goal of “Little Hats, Big Hearts” is to “raise awareness, provide resources and inspire moms to take their family’s heart health to heart while also raising awareness about Congenital Heart Defects.

To help, people from all over America are knitting and crocheting red hats for babies born in February. They can be given to participating hospitals and will then be given to new moms. Yarn or monetary donations are also gratefully accepted. You can get more info and learn how to send in the hats you make here.

If you want to help, here are three patterns and two yarns to get your knitting going:
