Welcome to Commit To Knit Month 2018, the campaign that encourages knitters and crocheters to make one item for charity.
There are at 6 million people who can knit or crochet in the UK. If each of them made one item for a charity this would mean a massive boost in items to sell to raise money and for charities to distribute to those in need for warm clothes and blankets in this country and abroad.
Last year crafters all over the country got involved. This year the event will take place throughout September and we arecalling on knitting groups across the UK to get involved.
To celebrate Commit To Knit, the team at UK Hand Knitting has created 7 specially designed free patterns including blankets, mitts, a hat, Christmas stockings and a gorgeous teddy kindly donated by blogger Emma Varnam. The leaflet is now available as a free download here
. Keep an eye on our blog
for ideas of what to do with your finished charity items.
We are also launching a fantastic new montly giveaway for knitting groups that register with UK Hand Knitting to win a pack of yarn. If you want to register your group you can follow this link
