Do you love knitting?
A great activity to consider while in lockdown is knitting – not only does it promote good mental wellbeing through relaxation, this knitting challenge will also give you a chance to be creative.
Whether a knitting ninja, purling pro, crochet connoisseur or just keen to have a go it’s time to get wild about wool. Please make as many small hats as possible that will fit on an innocent smoothie bottle. For each be-hatted smoothie sold, Age Concern Colchester & NE Essex receives 25p, and that money helps the Charity continue to support older people who are facing later life alone during this challenging time and long into the future after COVID_19. Age Concern has developed extended pandemic services to help those with dementia, the isolated, people who have Care issues and families who need emotional support so please help give us a boost so we can assist as many people as possible.
This time we are hoping you can help us reach our target of 50,000 hats please – which is double that of last year. With everyone safe at home we are hoping to collect quite a hoard.
Once your hat collection is complete, keep them and after things start to open up again, we we let you know the venue where to take them. Patterns can be downloaded from below to print.
The specific knitting patterns you can find below so please stick to the guidelines. Let’s colour in our days over NE Essex with as many of these hats as possible like you all did last year for the Big Knit.
Thank you so much.Untitled-design-min
