Big Knit 2012

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

Basic

Intermediate

Advanced

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

*UPDATE*

We are using the following dates to knit for this campaign:

Wednesday 12th September ‘Craft at The Crown’ 7.30pm onwards

Monday 17th September Craft Cafe (at the Park Barn) 7.30-9.30pm

Wednesday 26th September ‘Craft at The Crown’ 7.30pm onwards

Do come along and knit with us, we will have wool, needles and patterns and its all for a good cause. Do contact us if you wanted any more details.
