Top Gear for OUR TROOPS

Artist Unknown

Here is our second charity effort. This charity is sponsored by The Uptown Crochet Corner. Top Gear for OUR TROOPS. This charity is near & dear to my heart especially since my cousin is returning to Iraq for a third tour and we thought this would be the perfect time to spread the love abroad to the young women & men who are protecting our right to freedom.

Top Gear being helmet liners (crochet/knit beanies) made in 100 % soft wool. These hat's will be given to ground troops so the colors are black, beige, army green, olive, navy, desert camo, dark grey or brown. The fiber & colors are for their protection. No fancy stitches these hats will be worn under their helmets so they must fit close. Please do not double the yarn wool is very warm so there is no need. Make sure hat's are big enough to fit a man's head about 22 to 24"circ & long enough to cover the ears 8 1/2-10 in. No brim.

I will be adding a crochet pattern soon but for now if you wish to get started a simple Internet search will get you what you need. These hats are to be turned in the day of the HCOKT, if you are out of town and wish to join our efforts please feel free we will accept any & all donations from individuals & groups. Contact me for the mailing address @ . If you have any ??? please feel free to ask or just leave a comment I will get back to you asap.

Thank you for visiting hope to hear from you guys soon,
