Age UK has announced that the eighth annual ‘Big Knit’ will be going ahead this year and the campaign to get knitters knitting has already begun.

thebigknitlogoFor 2011’s Big Knit Age UK has teamed up with Innocent Smoothies who want knitters to create mini woolly hats, which might sound a little bizarre considering the name of the event. However, all makes sense as Innocent will be decorating their smoothies with mini woolly hats made by Age UK knitters. For every mini hat created Innocent promises to donate to Age UK helping them ensure a warm winter for the elderly.

Age UK have come up with a target of making an ambitious 650,000 mini woolly hats which would make a very impressive donation of £162,500. So the pressure is on to get everyone knitting. To get you started Age UK has come up with a great pattern guide that caters for all knitters- beginners, intermediate and advance. Click to download.

If your struggling for ideas or need a little creative inspiration check out the Big Knit gallery. The team and I are planning on joining the fun by making our own mini woolly hats. I’ll post photographs as soon as our hats are finished.

Send your mini hats to Age UK by 10th October 2011 to help keeping winter warm for the elderly.
