Today's pattern is for the Hat not Hate cause! Lion Brand Yarn Company is launching Hat Not Hate to rally consumers to knit or crochet blue hats, share them on social media with the hashtag #HatNotHate, and wear them proudly on World Bullying Prevention Day, October 1, 2018. In partnership with STOMP Out Bullying(TM), the leading national anti-bullying and cyber-bullying organization for kids and teens in the U.S. Lion Brand will be donating 2% of the proceeds of blue yarn sales to this cause.
As a mom, you worry about a lot of things when it comes to your kids. You teach them kindness, respect, compassion, etc. One of the things I worry about is bullying. It breaks my heart that 1 in 4 teens are bullied and that HALF of teen suicides are due to bullying....
Think about that for a moment... it could be your child, your sister, your brother, or your best friend... so I will be wearing my blue hat on October 1st! I hope that you will knit this one (or knit/crochet any other blue beanie) and wear your beanie too!
