|Sweater and hats made for this project by Kathy D. and Margaret|
Members of the St. Paul's knitting group can donate hand knit wool baby sweaters for a project that will help keep Syrian refugee babies warm. Kathy D. will take the garments back with her to Washington state to a museum collection point where they will be packed into layettes (collections of clothing for newborn children) and sent on from there.
The sweaters should be in baby sizes (newborn to three months) in your choice of pattern, and knit/crocheted from wool yarn. There is also a need for baby hats, and for knit/crocheted/quilted blankets.
The sweaters can be pullovers or cardigans. Here are some patterns to get you started.
