The Big Knit 2016-17

Thank you to everyone who took part in the last Big Knit campaign. Your little knitted hats have helped to fight loneliness.

Watch our video to see the difference they make

When is the next Big Knit?

We have momentarily put down our knitting needles and put on our thinking caps to plan for the next campaign.

Keep your eyes peeled as we will soon be able to bring you the dates for the next Big Knit, where you can join knitters all across the nation supporting Age UK by knitting little hats.

If you wish to continue knitting in the meantime, then please do and you can send your little knitted hats to us here:
