The Big Knit 2018

Published on 12 October 2018 12:14 PM

What is the Big Knit?

The Big Knit is a campaign run in partnership between Age UK and innocent drinks where we ask you to knit little woolly hats which then go onto their smoothies. For every smoothie sold, Age UK Kensington & Chelsea receives 25p.

This year, Age UK Kensington & Chelsea  has the target of 634 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!
