The big knit 2011

Jolie has supported a charity every year for National Knitting week since we opened in 2005. This year we are supporting Age UK in conjunction with Innocent smoothies.
If you would like to get involved all you need to do is knit a little woolly hat to fit on an Innocent smoothie bottle. These are then sold in supermarkets up and down the country and 25p for every one sold goes to Age Uk.
Patterns are available from http:/innocentdrinks.com/thebigknit Choose from a basic woolly hat suitable for beginners, or try a pineapple, banana, or a woolly sheep.
How about a unicorn - if you're feeling really ambitious?
Or even Jack Sparrow? Or be inspired and make up your own pattern.........
We will be sending all hats dropped off at Jolie on 12th October - not long, sorry, but they are very quick to do - I made two stripey ones in an hour. If you are not local to us you can post your hats directly to Innocent - the address is on their website.
Great for using up scraps of double knitting and 4ply. Happy knitting and for a good cause!
