Suffolk Big Knit 2019

Published on 15 October 2018 12:14 PM

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 Suffolk has the target of creating 25,000 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 below, make yourself a nice cup of tea, find a comfy chair and knit away!

**Hat Update** 
We would like to THANK EVERYONE who took part in the 2018/19 BigKnit Campaign.

We smashed our target of 25,000 and sent 30,700 of your knitted creations off to Innocent.!! This has raised £7675 which will help fund our ongoing services and support for older people in the county.

Please keep knitting and watch this space for the 2020 Campaign details



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!

Last year our fantastic knitters created 19,540 hats which raised an incredible £4885!
