With #HatNotHate, Lion Brand Yarn hopes to increase awareness of the impact bullying has on children, teens, and adults by rallying together and crafting blue hats to proudly wear throughout the month of October, which is National Bullying Prevention Month. With your help, they hope to create a new "craftivist" movement to send the message that bullying is unacceptable.
YOU CAN HELP! MAKE AND DONATE A BLUE HAT! When you buy yarn from The Artful Yarn, we'll give you the #HatNotHate wooden tag to sew on your hat(s). Free while supplies last!
Lion Brand Yarn will be collecting 25,000 blue hats and distributing them to schools around the country to wear throughout the month of October. Once you’ve finished your hat, please bring it to The Artful Yarn by July 15, 2019 and we will ship them to Lion Brand for distribution. Or better yet, give your hat(s) to your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors and/or friends to wear as their personal statement about stamping out bullying. Our goal is 100 hats! We can do it!
You can use ANY knit or crochet hat pattern you like! You can use ANY blue yarn you like! (But maybe washable is the best choice, right?!
