Tiny Stocking Hats for the BIG Knit Project

When walking down High Street Kensington, doing a bit of window shopping as you do, I spotted a posh food shop window filled with tiny, hand-knitted stocking caps.   It stopped me in my tracks, I was intrigued and went in to find out what this was all about.  (I confess, I was going there to purchase one of their outstanding Tiramisu desserts, so why not ask about the hats?)


It turns out that these are knitted by people all over Britain to support a project called The Big Knit.  Each hat results in a donation to AGE UK, a leading charity supporting older people.   


These little hats only take scraps and minutes to make, so if you'd like to join in on the BIG KNIT click on the links below to get started:

  2. I was tempted to use these as ornaments but I think I'd better send them on to Age UK. : )
