Before I start this post I should come clean. Innocent have been a client of mine for 14 years but I wanted to tell you a bit more about what I do for them.
Most of you will be aware of their campaign in aid of Age UK called The Big Knit. Each year thousands of knitters and crocheters from all generations knit little hats that adorn innocent smoothie bottles, usually in October. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of fuel poverty among the elderly.
I really look forward to seeing what challenge the team at innocent will have for me each year. I have knitted hats for statues in Copenhagen, including the Little Mermaid, created hats from a sketch submitted by numerous celebrities from Zandra Rhodes to Stephen Fry, designed character hats for Miranda, Liam Gallagher and Michael Sheen (although they weren’t used and designed lots of patterns featuring fruit, veg and animals.
Here are a few of the hats I have created over the years.
This February has been declared Big Knit Month so why not knit or crochet some hats to help this great cause. You can find some of my patterns here.
