Volunteer Knitting We are extremely grateful to our volunteer knitters and sewers for the time and effort taken in making baby clothing and blankets. Important Notes Please follow the specified patterns approved by our healthcare specialists at King Edward Memorial Hospital. Unfortunately, we cannot use garments made from unapproved patterns in our special care nurseries but are happy to take them in our hospital shops to raise funds for research. Wool can be provided upon request. Thank you for supporting King Edward Memorial Hospital and the Women and Infants Research Foundation! __________________________________________________________________________________ Knitted Cap Pattern Using 3 ¼ needles and 4 ply synthetic yarn (e.g. nylon or acrylic) cast on 100 stitches. 1 plain, 1 purl for 3cms.
