Big Knit 2018

Published on 26 October 2018 10:34 AM

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!

Hand in your hats

Once your little knitted creations are ready, drop them off at your local Age UK West Cumbria centre (Our Centres) or post them to:

Our Knitting groups

We would love you to join us at our knitting group where we knit and share tips over a cuppa. Click here for more information.

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!
