The “Beanies for Bravery” project is currently on hold. We are not accepting beanies at this time. Thank you for your interest and support from 2011-2015.
This pattern is by Michele Miller for the Beanies for Bravery Project, sending beanies to U.S. soldiers. As of April 2015. over 5000 beanies were shipped.
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.
