You can help a charity by knitting just one thing

Be it a hat, blanket square, premmature baby hat, or even a mini bobble hat for the Innocent Big Knit... you can help just by knitting :)

What do I do?

You may be wondering - how on earth do I knit for charity? Well, there are a number of ways in which you can get involved! There are quite a few charities which collect knitted squares which they then sew together to make blankets. These blankets are then given to people who need them most, such as elderly people or AIDS orphans in Africa. You can also knit items for premature baby units, such as hats and blankets. Innocent smoothies also run a campaign where people can knit tiny bobble hats for their smoothie bottles which are then sold to help age concern.

I can't knit, where can I learn?

You may want to help charities by knitting items for them but might have absolutely no idea of how to knit! Knitting is very easy to learn and you can easily teach yourself quite quickly. I've created a list of websites and tutorials which will help you along the way.
