About The Big Knit

Launched back in 2003, The Big Knit started an idea: innocent asked people to knit little woolly hats, then innocent put those hats on their smoothies. For each bottle with a hat sold, innocent donated 25p to Age UK. Since then, incredible people like you have contributed an astonishing 7.5 million hats, raising nearly £2.5 million for Age UK (including other donations made by innocent along the way).

The competition

This year, we’re looking for the person who can knit the most hats they possibly can for The Big Knit – the more hats your knit, the more bottles get to wear them in shops, and the more that are sold, the more money is raised for Age UK – it’s that simple!

And the biggest knitter of you lot (i.e. the person who sends in the most hats) will win a pile of great prizes! Including

  • A six-month subscription to Knit Now magazine
  • A bundle of goodies from innocent
  • A £100 John Lewis voucher
  • …and the warm fuzzy feeling that knitting for a good cause can bring!

Knit as many hats as you can, and send them in to the team at Knit Now before 30th June 2019 for a chance to win! Download your entry form below and send this in along with your hats so we know who has sent what.
