Big Knit 2012

19 Jul

Kate approached me with a brilliant idea some time ago for Make to join in with the Big knit campaign… what a great idea! Innocent Drinks team up with Age UK each summer to knit mini hats for the top of smoothie bottles to be sold during November and December. Innocent give  Age UK 25p from each smoothie with a hat sold and this goes towards helping older people keep warm and healthy this winter.














So we would need to package them all up and send them at the end of September in order to meet their deadline so we wanted to know who was up for knitting and crocheting some with us? We were also thinking of putting on some extra Make nights in September for everyone to knit and crochet together and we were going to see if we could get some donated wool too? Let us know your thoughts.

Here are some links to knitting patterns  if anyone wanted to get started over the summer. Crochet patterns to come….




they also have some other fun ones like the watermelon pattern as well as a pineapple and a bunch of grapes.

    What a great program! I still have the hat off one of the Innocent smoothies I bought while studying abroad in London a few years ago.

    I’m fine to do this, I haven’t got much money so might be able to get started but otherwise would love to meet up and do together, especially if we can get donations!!!!

      We have some donations of wool already! I can drop some wool to you if you’d like or alternatively wait until the next meetup?
