Knit Hats for 2023's Operation Christmas Child Boxes

Its time to start knitting hats for M's 2023 Operation Christmas Child Project -

Heck fire - how did it get here already!!!

This is my haul for November... Not very many - but!! its a start!!!

My goal is 53 this year - so that is 1 a week.... I guess I am on track ;-)

The loaded boxes!!!!

These are full of goodies for kids - and a Hat!!!  and on their way to show some love!!


Every time I post photos of the hats.. I get asked what pattern I use... and you all know I am a quilter ...not a knitter, so I never know how exactly to answer - but here is the what I do ;-)

We use these LOOMS:

and I followed this tutorial: Knit hat   and I made mine like this: 

To make the ones with a brim - you stitch 20 rows and fold in half ( back up on the loom) them make 30 more rows

Maybe I am not a knitter but a Loomer????? 

I use the pink one for the kids hats, and the purple one for my husbands hats!!

Our church collected those boxes also. and I've seen them in other blog posts. I suspect alot of boxes are going overseas.

You're off to a great start. Those stacked boxes look amazing and I hope the recipients feel all the love put into their contents.

I would love to make some of these hats but I don't know of a group in my area doing this. Would it be okay for me to make hats and send them to you? I already make newborn hats for the local hospital and have been doing it for years (using the blue loom) but I want to start making larger hats and since I already have the looms, I would be able to jump right in. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

What a wonderful start to your beanie-making year. We call them beanies here in Australia (do you call them beanies in the US too?).
