Warm the Heart with Knit & Crochet

Warm the Heart with Knit & Crochet

Ringtail Cafe’s Warm the Heart is sponsoring an event in Northern Kentucky to provide knitted or crocheted hats for premature and newborn babies and Cancer caps for all ages. If you enjoy knitting or crocheting and would like to donate to local charities, then we’re the group for you!

If you don’t know how to knit or crochet and are willing to learn, we’ll be happy to teach and assist! If you’d like to help in other ways, we need yarn donations for the projects. Contact us and we’ll let you know how you can help!

 

Charity:

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital – knitted or crocheted caps

Bring:

Knitting needles or crochet hook

Yarn (see specifications below)

Donation Requirements:

They need to be produced in a smoke free environment.

No adornments like buttons or beads, and no long strings or ribbons.

Everything will be sanitized with steam before it is given to patients, so items with a tighter weave are better.

Please use real soft baby yarn. No wool. Their skin is real sensitive.

Please no yellow yarn, it makes the babies appear more sick.

Provided:

Snacks, Drinks
