Big Knit

Calling all's time for the Big Knit!  Grab your needles and help us be there for older people with no one else to turn to.

What is the Big Knit?

We've been working with innocent drinks since 2003, asking crafters to knit little hats for the tops of innocent smoothie bottles. Every hat knitted raises 25p to help Age NI provide much-needed services and support to older people. 

Every hat is important, so whether you knit one or many, you will help us make a difference.

The 2022 campaign has now closed, but keep on knitting for next year!

Behatted bottles are now on sale in Sainsbury’s, Co-op and Costa shops across Northern Ireland - if you spot any, please send us photos at!
