find out how to get involved with the Big Knit

Fancy knitting some little hats and helping us raise money for Age UK? It's fun, it's easy and it's for a great cause. Every time we sell a little bottle wearing a hat, we donate 25p to Age UK to help keep older people warm and well over winter. The colder months can be tough for a lot of people – as many as 25,000 older people's lives are at risk because of the cold. But we can help. Thanks to knitters like you, we've raised over £1.7m so far.

You can find knitting patterns here, some inspiring hats here and a handy 'how to' video just here...

Every hat is important, so even if you've only got time to knit one or two, we'd still massively appreciate it.

Please send in your hats in by 11 December 2015 and keep your eyes peeled for smoothies wearing little hats in stores from February 2016.

Put all your hats in an envelope along with a note clearly stating:

- how many you've knitted

- the date

- your name and address

Then send them all through to:

If you've got any questions, tips or wool-related gossip, drop us a line at or give us a call on 0207 993 3311.

Happy knitting.
