Okay, so WHAT can you make? Let me see if I can break this down a bit. :) For this post, we'll talk HATS!
Everyone thinks of hats. In fact, so many people immediately think hats that sometimes charities run short of things like socks, scarves, gloves, blankets, and other things. So do consider that before you make hats! ;P Many of the charities listed above accept hats. So, some free hat patterns (Ravelry links):
- Hermione's Cable & Eyelet Hat (she did make hats for the House Elves, after all!)
- Turn A Square is simple and easy, and good for leftovers!
- Thorpe is warm and cozy, and, being top down, is great for stretching your yardage!
- Felicity is simple and elegant.
- This lace-edged woman's hat is lovely, and perfect for cancer patients.
- Shroom will work up FAST and warm!
- How about A Better Bucket?
- The Star-Crossed Slouchy Beret is on my list of must knits!

Oh no, she's forgotten crocheters! Not true! How about:
