Hats, hats and more hats ....


 
Last week Vanessa at the gorgeous Blog Coco Rose Diaries posted the details of this years Innocent Big Knit.
 
 
I remember the first time I saw these little hats on the Innocent smoothy bottles when I was shopping with my three girls a few years ago. We all just fell in love with them - such a brilliant idea and a fantastic way to raise funds for Age UK.
So spurred on by Vanessa I had a go !
The little clip below shows just how quick they are to make - well, it's a little speeded up, but they are certainly super quick to do.

... and here's one all finished and ready to go.


Before too long there was a little line up on the fireplace.

 
I added a couple of a slightly different design..

 
and there they are ...
 

ready to go and join all of these...

 
WOW !!
That's a lot of 25p's.

  1. These are divine, and anyone spotting one of these atop a little bottle would just have to snap it up - I know that I would! What do you think the chances are? xx

  2. Oh that's FABULOUS! What a star! They are brilliant, and they are fun to make aren't they! I've been churning out a production line of them all week, but i'm pooped now. I'm sending mine off today too. It's fun to wonder where they will end up!

    Have a super week!

    1. We thought that too - and said how funny it would be if it turned up in our local Sainsburys ! My daughters going to send the post across to Innocents Twitter page ( far too technical for me ) but we thought they might like to see how crocheters and knitters are uniting for the cause :)
