Hollywood’s leading ladies are picking up their favorite knitting needles and crochet hooks to spread some warmth to newborns in developing nations. Save the Children Artist Ambassador Gwyneth Paltrow, and actresses Rebecca Romijn, Debra Messing, Lisa Edelstein, Vera Farmiga, Mischa Barton and Patricia Arquette joined Save the Children and the Warm Up America Foundation’s Knit One, Save One campaign to help improve newborn survival globally.
Hollywood’s biggest stars made little caps in all colors and wrote personal messages to the mom and baby on a tag attached to the cap.
Mischa Barton, star of the “O.C.,” knitted a bright orange baby cap for the Knit One, Save One campaign.
The project has inspired some Hollywood artists like Mischa Barton to pick up knitting for the first time. “It’s great that you can help change a baby’s life in just an hour — or more like a few hours if you’re just beginning to knit like me,” said Mischa Barton. Barton’s simple square cap, bright orange with two multicolored tassels on top, is adorned with a cap tag that says: “Even though we are far apart, I hold you close to my heart.”
