knit one, help loads

join in with the big knit - get knitting and show your support

we haven't officially kicked off with the Big Knit 2021 just yet, but that doesn't mean you can't start getting your needles clacking ahead of time. We're not collecting hats until November 2020, so please hang onto them until then. 

The deadline for your woolly masterpieces isn't until Summer 2021, so you have plenty of time to hone your needle skills until then. 

Every hat is important, and anyone can learn to knit, so whether you knit one or loads, you’ll be making a difference.

You can find knitting patterns here, some inspiring hats here and a handy 'how to' video just here...

Once we're all back in Fruit Towers, you can pop your hats in the post to us. Pack them up along with a note that has:

- your name and address*
- how many hats you've knitted
- the date

Then send them all through to:

The Big Knit 2021, 

innocent Drinks,

Fruit Towers, 

2 Ballsbridge Park, 

Dublin 4

If you've got any questions, tips or wool-related gossip, drop us a line at or give us a call on 01 6644100.

Happy knitting.

*We ask for your address so we and Age Action can post you a thank you card and tell you about the next Big Knit. We’ll be joint controllers of your info, and we promise to keep it safe. You can see our privacy policy here and Age Action's here.
