Hats 4 heroes

This year for National Knitting week (15th - 21st October) we have chosen to support Hats 4 Heroes. We need to start knitting now as a consignment of hats will be sent off to the troops at the end of October - to avoid the Christmas post rush and also because it is starting to get chilly.

A great opportunity for using up oddments. Any colour(s) is fine, but please avoid flourescent colours for obvious reasons. We have patterns available at Jolie, but x 3 dk and aran patterns are available to download from http://www.hats4heroes.co.uk
We will be collecting all the hats in for week of 15th October, so get knitting!
* Please note, we now have an extension to end of October.
Please send your hat(s) to Jolie, 80 High Street, Walkern, Herts SG2 7PG
Thank you xx


  1. What a lovely idea I wish I'd known sooner as it's probably too late to send hats for this year but I shall start knitting now for next year, oh and saving up some pennies for chocolate bars too, Lucey x

  2. I spoke to Hats 4 Heroes yesterday and they are planning to send another consignment in January. We will however aim to collect all our hats here at Jolie by end of October. As you say Lucey, each hat is sent out with a chocolate bar, which is a lovely idea - so if you can't knit you can donate towards the chocolate. D x
