Purple Hats are back!

That’s right, it’s time to launch the 2014 CLICK for Babies campaign! Things are kicking off with an Open House, Knit-In & Work Party this weekend (July 12-13) from 11a-3p at Randall Children’s Hospital. Click here for details and to learn more.

What’s the campaign all about? Raising awareness about the period of purple crying and shaken baby syndrome. You can get involved by knitting or crocheting hats for newborns out of purple, machine washable & dryable yarn, and dropping them off at Twisted between now and October 1. We recommend Berroco Comfort and Berroco Vintage — both are easy-care yarns that come in a bunch of fun purples and multiple weights.

Twisted is offering a 10% discount on purple yarn purchased for making hats for the campaign. And we have two hat patterns available for free with purchase (but you can use any pattern you want): It’s My Party Hat by Emily Williams (pictured below) and Sweet Child of Mine Hat by Shannon Squire.
