Get out your knitting needles or crochet hook

September is Infant Mortality Month. There is a campaign to have a baby hat created for every baby lost. The effort is being sponsored by a large group of organizations.

Directions provided for the pictured hat: Cast on 64 stitches and alternate knit and purl rows for about an inch, creating a garter stitch. Switch to stockinette until the hat measured about 4", then begin decrease, K8, K2TOG, then K7, K2TOG, etc.

The following websites have details about where to send the hats:
