American Heart Association needs people to make hats for babies

The American Heart Association and The Children's Heart Foundation are looking for volunteers who can create tiny red hats for babies born in February, designated as American Heart Month.

In collaboration with the Children's Heart Foundation and to celebrate American Heart Month, people are being asked to create infant-sized woolly hats. For any questions about Little Hats, Big Hearts in CT, please contact Lisa Neff, Lisa.Neff@heart.org or 203-295-2954. They're hoping to give out thousands of red hats to babies to raise awareness about heart health and congenital heart defects.

Find out where to send the finished hats by selecting your state from the dropdown menu here.

We also recommend simple hat patterns.


- Baby-sized or preemie-sized red hats that are knitted or crocheted from cotton or acrylic medium- to heavyweight yarn.

Hospital workers can get involved in the project too, they just need to contact their local office.

"Little Hats, Big Hearts" first began collecting hats for newborns in 2014 in Chicago and warmed 300 little heads that first year. The project has grown to include 660 hospitals in 40 states handing out more than 100,000 hats.
