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 Somerset receives 25p.

This year, Age UK Somerset has the target of 16,000 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 from our Big Knit page, make yourself a nice cup of tea, find a comfy chair and knit away!

Hand in your hats
Once your little knitted creations are ready find out how you can get them to us by visiting our Big Knit page

Knitting groups
If you are part of a knitting group we would love you to join us.  Please contact us as we would be delighted to give you any resources you may need.


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!
