Help Us Knit Hats for St Mungos

Woo hoo! We’ve found enough knitters for the 30 hats we needed. But you can still help!

Check out www.woollyhatday.org or contact events@mungos.org

You Stitch Londoners are amazing.🙂

____________________________________________________________________

Stitch Londoners are a helpful bunch and we’re hoping you can help us help St Mungos.

The St Mungo’s homeless charity want us to knit 30 orange bobble hats to help launch their new campaign. We’re looking for knitters to help out with their needles. We’ll provide the yarn.

What we need you to do: Contact us and sort out picking up the yarn from a Stitch London meeting or from the Fleece Station

What we’re doing: We’re donating all the orange yarn for the hats and helping St Mungo’s find enough knitters to knit them

The free yarn can be picked up from The Fleece Station (address here) or from a Stitch London meeting (unfortunately Stitch London can’t afford to cover the costs of sending it out to people so it’ll have to be London knitters only). The pattern will be sent to you via email.

If you fancy helping out please contact us at info@stitchLDN.com with the subject header: ‘I want to make woolly hats’ and tell us:

1. How many hats you will knit

2. Where you will pick up the yarn from

Hats left to find knitters for: 0

What happens if I missed out on knitting one of the hats?!?! Never fear. Though we only need to help make 30 hats  (as we’re busy with lots of events so can’t manage all St Mungo’s knits ourselves) there is still the chance to help!

Happily you can still knit for St Mungo’s once we’re done. You can contact them at events@mungos.org and find out more about Woolly Hat Day at www.woollyhatday.org. Hurrah!
