The Big Knit

Big Knit bottles

Together, we've knitted 1,500,034 tiny hats.

We want to see a world where no one has no one to turn to. To the heroes who have knitted and crocheted their way towards this goal, thank you. Each one of these will keep a smoothie's head warm this winter, and for every one sold, we'll receive 25p. 

Diolch yn fawr.

We're absolutely delighted to announce the Big Knit will be going ahead for 2019  / 2020.

So don't put those knitting needles away. Grab your needles and help us be there for older people with no one else to turn to.

What is the Big Knit?

Every year, we ask you to knit tiny woollen hats, and each one gets placed on an innocent smoothie bottle.

For every smoothie sold, we receive 25p, and that money helps us fight loneliness among older people in Wales.

How to join in

Tell us your story - we'd love to send you a thank you card for your hats. If you'd like that too, and you want us to update you on all things Big Knit, include a note with your hats telling us your name and address. Let us know your knitting stories and why you're taking part in the Big Knit, too.

Or find a local Age Cymru partner and drop your hats off there.
