FREE PATTERN: BASIC BLANK BEANIE for WOOLLY HAT DAY

This autumn we’ve teamed up with the folks at St Mungo’s, a charity ‘opening doors for the homeless’, to champion their Woolly Hat Day and rally the knitting masses to use your purly powers to make a difference in the lives of people who need your help to find a home.

Join us and knit a hat to help the homeless.


Meet the Basic Blank Beanie designed by Stitch London's Chief Woolly Godzilla Wrangler Lauren "Deadly Knitshade' O'Farrell of Whodunnknit. The BBB is an easy peasy knitted hat that you can knit up in a few hours.

The Beanie, St Mungo’s and Stitch London have a challenge for you! We want you to customise your Beanie to give it a bit of character. Look at him all plain and unadorned. Wouldn’t you like to pepper him with purly personality, jazz him up with a blizzard of buttons or add some awesome sauce with some elegant embroidery?

Shove some individuality into your Basic Blank Beanie and boldly knit a hat that no one has ever knit before. You’ll be doing it for a very worthy cause. Use his powers for good by helping the homeless. And we'll share the best ones all over the internet! Woop woop!

Tweet us your progress to @woollyhatday and @stitchlondon
Share a pic over on Facebook on the St Mungos page
Instagram (tagging @stmungos and giving @deadlyknitshade a wave) to share picture
Ravelry you can see other’s BBB’s over on the pattern page.


Then when you’re all done sharing the stitchy love you can send your hat along to St Mungo’s where they'll be sold to raise money to help the homeless. All details of where to send are over here.

Join St Mungos and Stitch London in making a mountain on wondrous Woolly Hat Day Hats!
