A few years ago, Knit was approached by Nancy Peretz, a member of Winthrop Hospital’s Auxiliary board, about their Precious Purls project. The project was originally started at Garden City Stitches and Nancy was looking for another shop to take over the project when that shop closed. We were happy to step in. Precious Purls provides hats and blankets to preemies born at Winthrop Hospital. Through Nancy, we learned that 900 preemie were born at Winthrop each year.
We know that knitters and crocheters are generous people and love making things for others. We count on your support to pay it forward. Preemies grow quickly so we need hats with 8″, 9″, 10″ and 11′ circumferences. Knit is happy to supply you with the yarn you need. Please stop by the shop to pick up what you need.
Here are some pattern suggestions:
