knit one help loads

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

The Big Knit 2021 is officially live, so please get involved by getting your needles clacking and sending us in your woolly masterpieces. The deadline isn't until Summer 2022, so there's plenty of time to hone your tiny hat-making skills. 

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...

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, 

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.
