There is nothing more precious and special to a family than a new baby, especially those that are long-awaited for or those who arrive early. Whether you’re the mum to be, new parents, grandparents, family or friends one of the most personal and thoughtful gifts you can give or receive when a new baby arrives is a hand knitted garment.

The Innocent Big Knit – Get Involved

Need a new idea to keep the kids entertained over the school holidays? how about joining in with The Big Knit?. Every year hundreds of people knit tiny little hats to go on the top of innocent smoothie bottles to help raise money for Age UK.

For each smoothie that is sold with a hat on,  25p of that sale will be donated to the charity “Age UK”. This is a great cause to get involved in and we encourage you to buy a smoothie with a cute hat. Age UK invest a great deal of money into helping the elderly stay warm and toasty during the cold winter months and every little donation helps. Last year over £200,000 was raised to help keep thousands of older people warm and healthy in the UK.

There is plenty of time to have a go at some of innocent’s own creations ranging from beginner patterns to advanced  all available on their website, which they kindly provide the free knitting patterns for. If you’re feeling a little bit more adventurous create your own designs, how about some cute little animal designs or some funky avenger style hats, the ideas are endless!

We think these cute little hats could be used for lots of things, fab for the kiddies toys, cute little bottle toppers for wine gifts or just to decorate your house. For the perfect wool to get you started try our Dolly Mix Wool from King Cole. Alternatively you can take a look at our entire wool selection on our website.
