Today marks the start of National Knitting Week and we asking knitters and crocheters across the country to join our Christmas appeal and spread some festive cheer by making mini stockings which will be made into bunting.
National Knitting Week is the perfect chance for us to celebrate our craft. We want to bring a little Christmas spirit to care homes and lunch clubs by getting as many people involved as possible.
Anyone can get take part simply by making a mini Christmas stocking or sock from left over yarn. We have created 2 special knit patterns and Raveler RhonddaM has kindly donated a crochet pattern, all of which can be found on the charity pattern page
You can drop off any stockings at the UK Hand Knitting stand at the Knitting and Stitching Shows at Alexandra Palace and Harrogate, or by sending them to
