The Big Knit 2018

Published on 10 October 2018 10:57 AM


Many thanks for all the hats that you have been knitting for us. In December I sent off the first batch of 3000 hats to The Big Knit.  Please keep knitting because we have another 4000 to do before June 2019.

A very Happy Christmas and New Year

Please contact me at Sevenoaks Office on 01732 454108 or via my email if you have any questions.

What is the Big Knit?

The Big Knit is the campaign that Age UK runs in partnership with innocent drinks where we ask you to knit little woolly hats which then go on to their smoothies. For every smoothie sold, Age UK receives 25p.

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!
