Innocent Smoothies Hat Crochet Patterns 2009

warm_happy_people

It’s time to get knitting ‘crocheting’ to help older people stay healthy this winter. Dust off those knitting needles ‘crochet hooks’, find a ball of your favourite yarn and cast on ‘chain’ to help make this year’s Big Knit the biggest ever.

..It’s a sad fact that in the UK, 1 in 10 people over the age of 65 are malnourished. So when it’s nippy outside, it’s even more important for older people to look after themselves and make sure their bodies are in tip top shape.

We’ve joined forces with Sainsbury’s again this year to try to raise over £250,000 to support Age Concern and Help the Aged with healthy eating and healthy living projects during the winter months. And we need your help to knit ‘Crochet’ lots of little hats for our bottles.
