The Big Knit 2011 is now open!

Do make as many little hats as you can, for Innocent’s Big Knit project. I worked with some lovely ladies and gents at an Age Concern centre a few years ago, and the money they got from Innocent went to fund some cracking trips out.

And here’s a few words from the wonderful Juliet Bernard, editor of The Knitter, who are big supporters of the campaign …

‘We want to raise £160k this year for Age UK by knitting 650,000 little hats which will go on our smoothie bottles and be sold in stores in November. For every little hat knitted, we’ll give 25p to Age UK to help them make winter a little warmer for older people across the UK.  We need your help to reach this huge target – we have 3 different patterns to start you off and there will be lots more going up on our website very soon.  You can find the patterns by searching innocent’s Big Knit on Ravelry and the pdfs will also be going up on the website next week.’
