Boomer Caps


Here are some of the Boomer caps that were made by Rae's sister Bette and by Evelyn B.
The pattern to make these caps is available at Faktor's. Rae is taking these with her to B.C. where the Canadian Forces will take them to Afganistan. They are used to keep the small infants warm and reduce the mortality rate. I have enclosed a link to the explanation of the cap's name "Boomer Cap" http://www.capitalhealth.ca/NewsAndEvents/Features/2006/BoomerCaps.htm

Here is a link to the PDF for the pattern

http://www.savethechildren.org/campaigns/caps-to-the-capital/

The information on both the links is worth uploading and reading. If any of our members wish to make some of these hats, the Guild will see that they are sent away.

Hope to start on my jar blocks tomorrow. I have made three hats to date. They sure knit up fast. I put a little top on one to see how it would look. Is that acceptable or do we have to use the pattern posted?
