Crochet for a Cause 2020 - Easy Crochet Hats and Scarves for Charity (2024)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my fulldisclosure and privacy policyfor details.

Making for charity is such an awesome thing to do. My wonderful Mum is always crocheting or knitting hats and scarves for charity. She had made so many over the years and she sends them off in big batches when she has a pile.

As many of you know, I also work as a midwife in the NHS and so have first-hand experience of how invaluable any handmade little hats and blankets are for our tiny premature babies and also the bigger ones that don’t have enough to keep them warm.

So when I heard that Ashley from EdythBlayn was organising Crochet for a Cause I couldn’t wait to be involved!

How You Can Help – Crochet Hats and Scarves for Charity

Every Monday from June until August two patterns (either hats and/or scarves) will be featured from different crochet designers.The PDFs to their patterns will be available for free download for the entire week!

You can crochet as many or as few of the patterns as you like and the goal is by the end of summer you have several crochet hats and/or crochet scarves to donate to wherever you like, for example – local homeless shelter, hospital, cancer centre, school, pregnancy resource centre.

If you can’t find a local charity, here are some ideas of where to send your hats and scarves and a link to a heart charity project too:

  1. UK Charities to donate your crochet to.
  2. Heart appeal
  3. US Charities to donate your crochet to.

More About the Patterns

The patterns will all be beginner-friendly to easy-intermediate in difficulty and range in size and gender-target so you can tailor them to your needs.

Please only use cotton and soft acrylic yarn and please avoid wool as it can be irritating, especially for babies with sensitive skin.

The patterns will be free to download from Monday at midnight EST until Sunday evening.The download will either be available directly from the designer’s site, or through Ravelry.

How Do I Get The Patterns?

Ashley has created this great little infographic to show you how it all works:
