The Big Knit 2021

Published on 17 December 2020 11:29 AM

Get knitting and raise money for Age UK Notts.

Grab some wool, knitting needles, your comfiest chair and knit a woolly hat or two. The money raised through The Big Knit will help us provide practical and emotional support for older people who need it now more than ever. We get 25p for every knitted hat as part of The Innocent Big Knit. Every hat is important, whether it’s as neat as a pin or as homemade as a pasta portrait. Knit one, knit loads - you’ll be making a huge difference either way.

What do I need to know?

Whether you’re a knitting novice or a woolly wonder, it's easy to get started. You’ll also be part of the huge knitting team helping us to reach such a monumental target for a great cause.
