This year, the Knit & Knot event and Aan de Haak (both Dutch crochet related stuff, which I will definitely talk more about in the future), have joint forces to create a crocheted Christmas tree for the Child hospital in Amsterdam. Crochet an ornament and make a child happy.
I always like it when handicraft can be used for a good cause and this is no exception. The one rule: crochet anything that fits in a tree.
Because I am a blogger for Aan de Haak, I got a message if I wanted to use my personal channels, to share this cause and spread the word. Being able to make some happy with yarn is my personal life goal, so I absolutely love this and will support. How? Well by designing of course. In my project page but also below this blogpost, you will find a free pattern of a heart. Make sure to have all the hearts finished and send before the 20th of October or bring them to the Knit and Knot in Tilburg!
I chose to design a heart with some glitter on it as Love and Family is the most important in life. Mine is a bit girly but if you make it green or blue and add some other glitter colors, I think all kids will find a favorite.
If I didn’t convince you yet, then here is another reason to participate: Make all the hearts from your left overs (this project is perfect for it), send them to the below address, ask new yarn for Christmas! I think that’s a win-win for everyone!
