Get knitting for the Big Knit 2015

20 August 2015

The Big Knit logo

Raise money for Age UK Mid Mersey by getting involved with Age UK and innocent’s Big Knit campaign 2015. You can make a difference by knitting some mini hats to help us keep older people warm and well in winter.

Knitters of all ages can get involved in this exciting campaign to make lots of tiny hats for the top of innocent smoothie bottles. For every behatted bottle sold, 25p will go straight to Age UK so we really need your help create lovely hats of different styles and designs.


Ready, steady, knit!

Get as creative as you like to knit your woolly hats; as long as it will fit on the top of an innocent bottle, anything goes! We suggest between 5-7cms in circumference and at least 3cms tall.
