Today I received an email from Age Cymru, announcing their Big Knit campaign which we are supporting and will be knitting hats for. Age Cymru are inviting all knitters to once again create some mini hats for them which will then appear on innocent smoothies in stores around the country in 2016.

AgeCymru receive a 25p donation for every hat knitted and money raised will allow them to help older people to stay fit, healthy and active during the winter months and keep their homes warm.

We think this is a great idea and we’d love for you to get involved with their campaign; there are very few rules that apply, which are:

  • The patterns for the little hats can be downloaded below which are also available from the Age Cymru; Your own designs are also welcome, but please make sure they meet the required measurements.
  • We need all hats returned by 20 November 2015. Enclosed is a hat submission form, please return this with every parcel of hats you send in to us. Hats should be sent to:
  • The Big Knit, Age Cymru, 13/14 Neptune Court, Vanguard Way, Cardiff, CF24 5PJ.

Spread the word and get new knitters involved!

Everyone at Age Cymru really does appreciate the support you give us through your knitting and they look forward to receiving the first of your hats very soon. Thank you for your continued support!
