The Big Knit is a campaign launched by Innocent Drinks to help raise money for vulnerable elderly people. To get involved, make a woolly hat that can be popped on top of a smoothie bottle. For each one sold, 25p is donated to Age UK. The idea has snowballed since it started in 2003 and thanks to wonderful knitters the campaign has raised over £2 million! If you want to add to that value make as many hats as you like and scroll down to find out how you can help.
Áine Marriott has created an impressive collection of teeny hats that you can knit for charity. So whether you’d like to make an adorable alpaca or an on-trend unicorn, you can download the simple patterns here. We’ve also got this aviator hat in the collection. How amazing would it be to see your creations on the supermarket shelves? Send your finished woolly hats to:
