The hats I knitted for the
2013 campaign
Individually bagged up in sets  All parcelled up ready to go to Fruit Towers!  £4.20 to post my hats which weighed nearly 2Kg! 
Innocent Big Knit Hats  And here are some of my alphabet hats - organised into a special message for me!

and this was the email that came with the hats:

Hello Jo, 

I just wanted to send you this. We've made some thank you cards using your alphabet letters for all of the people getting in touch to tell us they've been knitting. We made this special one for you to say a big thank you for everything you do for us on the Big Knit and for your general brilliance. 

Cheers Helena
Dorothy's Hats 
Dorothy works in colour batches it makes it easier for her to keep track of the numbers.  Dorothy knits ten and then threads a piece of yarn through them so they can be counted in bundles.
Can you spot the Wimbledon tribute batch and an Eddie Stobart batch? 
The Chelsea Centenary set are easy to see - they have a lovely floral theme!

Thank you for sending in your pictures Dorothy they are really lovely!

Cindy's Hats
Innocent Big Knit Hats 2013
This is Cindy's first year working for the Big Knit Campaign and she decided  to make just one hat of every pattern she found. 

Little did she realise just where it was all going to lead when she started in January! 

She has now completed 130 hats and particularly liked making the little animals and characters.

Thank you for the photo Cindy and I look forward to seeing some of your hats in the Big Knit Advert!

Catherine's Hats
Innocent Big Knit 2013 Catherine has been working on her 100 hats for the Big Knit 2013 since it was announced earlier this year. The Daleks and toadstools in the middle came out bigger than she expected although I don’t suppose anyone will mind too much! I particularly like the lions – they may be appearing on my website at some point, although they took Catherine ages to make. Each piece of wool for the mane had to be tied on one strand at a time!

The 12 hats top left are Catherine’s oldest daughter’s creations.

You may have spotted the sharks in the photo – top right-ish. Catherine adapted a crochet pattern she found online. I’ve knitted one so far but hope to do another 11 very soon. Her pattern is available on my Facebook page for the time being.

Helen and Alison's Hats
Innocent Big Knit Campaign - 2013 Hats Helen and Alison work in a school but use their spare time in the summer holidays to knit hats for the Big Knit Campaign. 

These are the hats they knitted this summer - you may spot some familiar designs. 

I think the Innocent Smoothie Bottles are going to look very smart and colourful this November and should fly off the shelves in no time at all!

Send me photos of your 2013 hat collections if you want them included here!
Rosemary's Hats
Innocent Big Knit Campaign - 2013 Hats Rosemary enjoyed copying a lot of the designs
off the website.

Can you spot the Skating Sets adapted to Rugby Sets in the colours of Ulster Rugby? 

The witches hats were knitted in black sparkly wool with stars added and the Christmas trees look brilliant in fluffy wool.

Marie-M's Hats
Innocent Smoothies Big Knit Hats 2013 Marie-M has been a fantastic supporter of Jo's Big Knit since I first launched the website.  She has generously shared her ideas and patterns - so far I have used her Skating Sets, Barney Bags and Ollie Octopus.  She has even sent some of these across to England so I can see exactly what they are like.

Marie-M is keen for the little hats to be either eye catching or multi-purpose so that they fly off the shelves and raise lots of money for charity.

She has now become a very good friend.
These are the hats knitted bu Marie-M in Switzerland 
Princess Ntombi's Hats
Innocent Smoothies Big Knit Hats 2013 Princess Ntombi knitted 140 hats and hand delivered them to Fruit Towers in London.  She used a lot of the patterns off the site - you will probably spot some familiar favourites.

I particularly like the little rabbits, snowmen and Father Christmas hats.

Denise's Hats
Innocent Smoothies Big Knit Hats 2013 Innocent Smoothies Big Knit Hats 2013 Denise has chosen to knit her hats using just pink and white wool. 

They look really lovely as a whole selection.

Nice to see some familiar designs - and I just love the 100's and 1000's on the cupcake.
