Make-a-Wish: Natalie's Knitting Challenge

August 03, 2020
Join Natalie's challenge and make her wish come true!

Natalie was diagnosed with lymphoma when she was  in 7th grade. She was treated at Lucille Packard Hospital at Stanford. During her treatment, she picked up knitting to pass the time. Natalie just turned 15 yrs old at the end of July and and just completed her last chemo treatment. 

Natalie's wish through Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area is to brighten the lives of patients at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, and to thank her caregivers who helped her beat cancer.

Knit or crochet a teenager- sized hat. We have loads of free hat patterns here. If the hat is sized for an adult, you can use a thinner yarn and smaller needles to make it slightly smaller. 

Great choices of super soft, machine wash/dry yarn include Comfort,  Comfort Chunky.Cherub Chunky, and Cherub Bulky.   

Share photos of your hats on social media using #KnittingwithNatalie and tag Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford for your chance to win prizes.

Bring your hats in to the shop by August 28 and we'll ship them out to Make a Wish Greater Bay Area.

If you'd like to ship them yourself, the address is:
Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area 
1333 Broadway #200
Oakland, CA 94612

All hats will be donated to the Teen Health Van, a service within Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. 

Let's help make Natalie's wish come true!

August 26 is Dog Appreciation Day!

July 26, 2019

October 2019 Update:

Thank you to those of you that made snuggle blankets!

Blankets were sent directly to San Francisco Animal Care and Control.


Let's celebrate by making snuggle blankets to support the Snuggle Project!  

The Snuggles Project is an organization that provides Snuggles to animal shelters worldwide. 

After being given a Snuggle, a frightened or difficult to handle animal is able to become more calm which allows time for the animal and caregiver to learn how to handle the situation.  In addition, Snuggles provide a more homey environment for the animals, visitors and staff. 

Click here for knitting and crochet patterns for Snuggles. There are a variety of patterns using different stitches. There are even basket patterns for little pups and kitties. 

Want some help with the patterns? We're holding a FREE with yarn purchase workshop on Sunday, Aug 25 from 1 to 2:30pm. 


For My Favorite Knit Snuggle: must know how to CO, K and BO

For Snug Harbor Knit Snuggle: must know CO, K, P, BO and work ITR

For Crochet Snuggle Tubbie: must know ch, sc and dc

Please bring locking stitch markers for all projects. 

If you don't need help but want to make a Snuggle, please stop on by and knit/crochet with us!

We plan on sending our first batch of cuddle blankets by September 30. 

We'll be taking donations for the Snuggles Project all year.  

Let's support homeless animals!
