Hi, Today I wanted to talk about the Innocent Big Knit. I always forget about this charity event but it's one that I've been intrigued by in the past. I love all the little hidden jokes on the innocent bottles and the brand in general as their smoothies are just so good. So what is the big knit? well you know those little woolly hats that appear on all the little bottles of juice and look super cute, well that. Innocent ask that people make these little hats, even one hat will make a difference. So I'm going to dig out my knitting needles and give it a go.
The idea started in 2003 and has grown in popularity since, there have been over 5 million mini hats knitted in the past 12 years, raising over £1.7 million to help the older generation who's lives are at risk during the colder months of the year. For every hat sold along with a bottle of juice, innocent will donate 25p to Age UK.
I'm not sure what to knit but there are some really nice instructions on the website for inspiration and simply to get you started. It's a great opportunity to learn a new skill while helping a charity. If you would like to take part there is more information on the website: www.thebigknit.co.uk. They require that all hats are received by 11th of December, so not the longest amount of time but enough for a few attempts.
Can you knit? will you be taking part?
