Ready, steady, knit!

.Whether you’re new to casting on or you already know your stocking stitch from your garter stitch, everyone can get involved in the Big Knit and, you’ll be supporting Age UK Gloucestershire to raise vital funds whilst you’re knitting. 

Our partners at Innocent will adhorn their Smoothie bottles with your woolly wonders and for each be-hatted Smoothie sold, Age UK Gloucestershire receives 25p.

The Big Knit has been running annually since 2003 and we’ve been able to raise thousands of pounds over the years, with every penny being used to help local older people here in Gloucestershire.

Get Involved

We have patterns to suit all abilities available to download here.

Please get your completed creations to us here at our Age UK Gloucestershire office, 26 Station Road, Gloucester GL1 1EW by 1st July 2019.

You can send them by post or drop them in to us.

Later in the year, who knows, perhaps you’ll spot your hats on a supermarket shelf near you!

Share your stories

Perhaps your knitting group is getting involved, or maybe you’ve never knitted before and Big Knit has encouraged you to take it up. Or perhaps you’ve enjoyed the social benefits of being part of a knitting group. Whatever your story, share it with us. Check out our social media pages for updates on our Big Knit campaign.
