Introducing to you the purple hat!

I’ve created this hat to support the initiative of BC Women’s and Children’s Hospital to inform patents of the period of PURPLE crying. Many newborns discharged from the hospital receive a tiny purple hat, with information booklets to remind them that sometimes inconsolable baby crying is normal, and that it is never ok to shake a baby. These purple hats are donated by knitters and crocheters, and may be a fun theme to your usual knit get together with friends.
