What is the Big Knit?

The Big Knit is the campaign that Age UK runs in partnership with innocent drinks where we ask you to knit little woolly hats which then go on to their smoothies. For every smoothie sold, Age UK receives 25p.

This year, Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees  has the target of 25,000 hats!

How to get involved

We’d love you to knit lots of lovely little hats for this year’s Big Knit and whether you’re a knitting novice or a purling pro, it couldn’t be easier.

Download the knitting patterns below, make yourself a nice cup of tea, find a comfy chair and knit away!

How does the Big Knit help?

The money we raise from the Big Knit helps us be there for older people who have no one else to turn to – so those little hats really do make a big difference!
