I received an email from Innocent yesterday confirming that the Big Knit is on again this year!
The task is simple - knit or crochet as many cute hats as possible and send them by Friday 15th October to:
The Big Knit
1 The Goldhawk Estate
The hats will be displayed on small sized smoothie bottles which will be for sale in Boots and Sainsbury during November.
There is a selection of patterns on the homepage for the Big Knit or you could make up your own. There is a weekly competition for the best hat which is on their blog. I am hoping to get busy with my needles and thinking cap and will post some free original patterns here too and also on Ravelry. Watch this space!!
They are aiming for 800,000 hats which will raise £200,000 for Age UK (previously Age Concern) and it will take the total raised by the Big Knit, first started in 2003, to £1m!
So what are you waiting for!!
I'd love to hear how you get on!!!
