Innocent's #bigknit for Age UK

For the past few years, Innocent smoothies have teamed up with Age UK to raise money to help older people keep safe and warm during the winter.  Anyone can knit or crochet a cute little hat, these get sent to Innocent's HQ and in November they'll be paired with a bottle of smoothie and on sale in major retailers.  For each behatted bottle sold, 25p is donated to Age UK.

My crafty weapon of choice is the crochet hook and I managed to whip up these in a couple of hours.  Whether you're a beginner or a wizard with a pair of knitting needles, there's still a couple of weeks to send in your wooly efforts.  The deadline for sending in your hats has been extended until 31st October.  You don't need to be an expert either - Innocent have a range of patterns for different skill levels for you to have a go at. 

Will you be making a hat to send in?  Or will you be waiting to snap one up when they hit the shops?


  1. Aw they're adorable, especially the bunny one! I have never tried knitting but it looks like such great fun, I'd really like to contribute a little hat as it's a wonderful idea.
