Knitting for Charity - Darn Good Yarn

Knitting for Charity

It's that time of year when people are looking outward for things they can do to help in the world. The holidays is an amazing time where people come together to serve others, and as crafters we've been brainstorming of things we can do. Knitting for charity is a great way to serve your community. Whether you're knitting for a homeless shelter, for soldiers deployed overseas, refugees, or for a family in need, you're helping others. Making winter hats and scarves is an especially useful gift of your time, because they will help the less fortunate keep warm during the cold winter months. We've compiled a few of our very favorite knitting patterns that are quick and easy, perfect for knitting for charity!
