The Big Knit 2021/22

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.

This year, Age UK Stockport has the target of 1,000 hats and all the money we raise will stay in Stockport and will be used to help combat loneliness.

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!

Hand in your hats

Once your little knitted creations are ready, drop them off or post them to:

Age UK Stockport
56 Wellington Street

Please be aware the office has restricted opening at the moment but there is a post box! If you have any problems getting them to us give us a call on 0161 480 1211 and we can arrange for them to be collected.

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!
