Purple Kisses For the Purple Cap Campaign

Purple Kisses

Purple Kisses – the shape reminds me of Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates!

This is the third year of the Purple Cap Campaign or “Click for Babies“.  This organization was created to raise awareness of Shaken Baby Syndrome.

I have designed a little cap for the campaign and the pattern Purple Kisses is a free download on Ravelry.  This pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters.  It is knit in the round in a spiralling pattern.  The pattern is written for both Double Knitting and Worsted gauges.

If you are more of a beginner knitter the website has links to many free hat patterns.  Take a look and find one you like and knit purple for the babies.  I also have another free pattern on Ravelry – Baby Flap Cap – perfect for chunky purple yarns.

These caps need to be at least 50% purple in colour and we are collecting them at Mad About Ewe.  If you are not in Nanaimo or area – check with the organization to find your local group.

Happy Knitting for a Good Cause!

    I love the Baby Flap Cap – what would I do to make this fit an adult size head?
    Thank you

    • Hi Laura,
      You would need to add stitches between the flap shapings – I would start at around 92 sts and reduce to 72 sts. Or try working the pattern with a bulkier yarn and larger needles.
      Have fun playing1
