Smoothie moves with Innocent’s Big Knit
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 2, 2009
Tiny hats for bottles of Innocent smoothies are becoming a bit of a tradition. You S&B Londoners have been knitting them annually since S&B first began and have come up with some tiny loveliness.
The hats are sold atop smoothie bottles and do more than just them look pretty. Each one raises money for Age Concern, helping support older people when they need it most.
This year we’ve decided to go all out and try to churn out as many tiny hats as possible. Fancy knitting a few?
You can find three fabulous tiny hat pattern on the Innocent site. Start off simple, start off a little bit crazy, or go entirely wild with your idea.
The Stitchettes will collect up the Innocent Hats and hand them over for the deadline of Friday 16th October. You can bring them along to any meeting. We’ll feature our faves on our blog post and in the newsletter after the deadline.
If you can’t make it along to a meeting then fear not. You can send them into Innocent via snail mail too.
Just pop your hats in an envelope along with your name, address and number of hats knitted, and send them by the 16th of October to this address:
