Simple Purple Baby Hat Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Purple Baby Hats Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

I was  asked if I had a quick and easy infant hat crochet Pattern  that could be used
 for the "Purple Baby Hat Project".

I was not sure what the purple Baby Hat project was, 
so I did some research. 
It is an important  and needed project. 
I also had not  heard of "Shaken Baby Syndrome".
Once I read about it, I knew I needed to get this
 crochet Baby hat pattern out there.

"Asking knitters and crocheters to make purple infant hats as part of a campaign to stop shaken baby syndrome and infant abuse."

Here are some Facts About SBS
 or Shaken baby Syndrome.
"SBS is a form of child abuse that occurs when an adult or older child violently shakes a baby or young child.
It is estimated that 1,000-3,000 children in the 
United States suffer from SBS each year.
One fourth of the victims of SBS die, and 80 percent 
of survivors suffer from permanent brain damage."
