Knitting for Charity: 5 Free Patterns for Charity Knitting

Oct 25, 2013

There are so many charites to knit for, and here at Knitting Daily, we love to contribute our knitted handiwork to people in need. I've put together a free eBook for you, which contains five of my favorite knitting patterns for charity knitters: Knitting for Charity: 5 Free Patterns for Charity Knitting.

Whether it's a hat, blanket, or baby beanie, we have a knitting project that's perfect for you and your chosen knitting charities.

Clockwise from upper left: Comfort Shawl, Garter-Stitch Baby Blanket,
Baby Beanie, Knitted Cuddlies, Earflap Hats
Newborns need to keep their precious little heads warm, and the easy Baby Beanie is perfect for that. Knit several and donate them to a hospital in your hometown.

Babies also need blankets, of course. I've got a great, easy pattern for you: the Garter-Stitch Baby Blanket. It's basically a giant Granny's Favorite Washcloth reinterpreted into a blanket.

People going through chemo or any other medical crisis will love receiving a beautiful, comforting shawl. Make a few Comfort Shawls and contact The American Cancer Society to see which region in the country is in need.

Kids in crisis need something to love and call their own. Louisa Harding's Knitted Cuddlies are perfect for charity knitting. There are three designs to choose from: a rabbit, a bear, and a kitty.

Teens have needs too, and they love earflap hats. We've included a family of hats in three different sizes. You'll enjoy knitting the easy Earflap Hats and thinking about the teens who will get so much use out of them in the cold winter months.

Knitters have a unique ability to contribute to the welfare of society—we can share our craft with others, knitting love and comfort into each stitch. I know you'll find a pattern that fits the needs of your favorite knitting charities.

How many skeins of the Ewe Ewe yarn are required for the baby blanket?

I agree with Cindy, should one cast on 4 stitches? But the next rows still wouldn't be accurate. Who has corrections for this pattern, please?

Confused...I am fairly new to knitting...this seems like a pretty straight forward pattern, but I am confused by Row 2 and 3 directions...after you knit 5 stitches, if you k2, yo, k2 then you have one stitch left on your needle...what do you do with it? same with row 3 instruction...should row 2 be k2, yo ,k3?

Great patterns, thanks! It would be really helpful to have a current list of charities to knit for. Is there such a list on your site?
