This pattern is by Michele Miller for the Beanies for Bravery Project, sending beanies to U.S. soldiers. As of August 2013 over 2700 beanies have been shipped. All information can be found on the pattern and at Snappy Tots.
This pattern includes guidelines for my “beanies for bravery” project, sending handmade beanies to U.S. troops. Please follow guidelines and ask questions if needed.
All hats MUST be:
100% washable fibers.
black or dark brown, worsted weight
NO stripes, pompoms or earflaps
Note: the units we send to request nonwool, washable fibers. We have double and triple checked this information with the U.S. Army commanders and USO contacts, making sure it is correct. Yes, there are some branches that only allow 100% wool, but not the ones we send to. Please follow our guidelines.
