You put your heart into knit or crochet creations using your own pattern or choose from our wide variety of free hat / chemo cap patterns and free NICU blanket patterns.
Then send us your lovingly handmade creations by using the steps outlined below.
Once your creations arrive at Knots of Love, your creations are carefully checked in, inspected, sorted, tagged, placed in pretty bags decorated with a red bow (or with a flag for veterans) boxed, labeled, and shipped to the
580+ locations across the USA that we serve (at zero cost to those in need who receive the beanies or blankets!).
Lastly -- we will reach out to tell you exactly where each one of your hats and/or blankets were sent and you will know that your work will be out in the world, spreading love and making a difference!
The process for donating your adult-size beanies and or NICU blankets is simple.
Please follow these 3 steps, and we will take it from there:
