The Big Knit!
Throughout the winter, Innocent smoothies wear hats knitted by people like you, to raise money for charities like Braveheart. Innocent donates 25p to Braveheart for each behatted bottle sold. The hats are tiny and need just 16 rows of 28 stitches and a bobble.
Last years target of 1500 hats was met and a grand total of was raised for Braveheart, you will have the chance to see your hats in print – the best hats in Scotland will be showcased in Age Concerns quarterly magazine and the best in the UK will be featured on the innocent drinks website.
Every little hat helps! Ask a Braveheart staff member for a pattern, or download it by clicking on this link: http://www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/static/bigknit/imgs/innocent-big-knit-doddle-pattern.pdf
