I am reposting a link to a post I created las year in honour of the past and present service men and women...I recently participating in a Crochet for a Cause called Beanies for Bravery. Beanies for Bravery is a dream of one of my favourite crochet pattern creators, Heidi from Snappy Tots. She had dreamt of sending beanies to service men and women in Afghanistan to keep them warm for the winter under their helmets. In the initial call to duty, Heidi wanted to reach 200 brave service personnel and by the deadline in October that number more than doubled. She has sent 2 shipments overseas and has more to go in the next few weeks. If you are a knitter or a crocheter on Heidi's blog, Snappy Tots, she has posted a free pattern for crocheting and as for a knitted pattern there are certain measurements that the beanie must meet website there are patterns for knit and crochet. Here is the link page with information on how you can get involved...click HERE.
If you can help out with the Beanie for Bravery by all means do...it means so much to the men and women to know that there are people from across the seas believing in what they do...
Here are the printable links from last years homage to all who serve and have served so we could enjoy our FREEDOM!!!
