The innocent Big Knit – get knitting for charity

A line of innocent smoothies wearing little woolly hats

Little hats, big difference

Join us to knit little hats for innocent smoothie bottles and help raise money to support older people!

Every year, an army of woolly warriors take up their knitting needles and crochet hooks as part of the innocent Big Knit in partnership with ϲֱ쿪. 

The Big Knit is our partnership with innocent drinks. We've been working together since 2003, asking the country's crafters to knit little hats for the tops of innocent smoothie bottles. Every hat knitted raises 25p to help ϲֱ쿪 provide much-needed services and support to older people.

Why has this date been moved?

Things are taking innocent a little longer than usual at the moment, so they've decided to give themselves a little more time. They continue to be committed as ever to helping older people who are most in need through their Big Knit campaign with ϲֱ쿪 and hats will be on bottles in January.

If the hats on bottles are on sale, why can't we knit more hats now?
