The weekend has been wet and grey, so the perfect opportunity for Katie and I to contribute to The Big Knit. As I’m sure you know, this is innocent drinks’ annual autumn campaign, with every purchase of a woolly hat-adorned smoothie raising 25p for Age Action. Given that I’m always persuaded to buy one whenever Katie sees them on the shelves I can vouch for the effectiveness of these eye-catching woolly chuggers.
As I discovered this weekend they’re a great way of getting kids to knit (Katie, aged 10, did the pink with blue bobble and the pink and turquoise stripes, and is keen to do another one with three colours). They’re also quite addictive! We rattled off nine in a few hours.
The basic pattern is here, and with the deadline extended to 31st October there’s still plenty of time to join in.
