UK Hand Knitting is asking knitters and crocheters across the country to join their 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”, says a spokesperson at UK Hand Knitting. “We want to bring a little Christmas spirit to care homes and lunch clubs by getting as many people involved as possible to make some festive bunting.”
Anyone can get take part simply by making a mini Christmas stocking or sock from left over yarn. UK Hand Knitting has created 2 special knit patterns and Raveler RhonddaM has kindly donated a crochet pattern, all of which can be found on the UK Hand Knitting website.
The organisation is keen to make as many metres of bunting as possible. Knitters and crocheters can drop off their bunting at the UK Hand Knitting stand at the Knitting and Stitching Shows at Alexandra Palace and Harrogate, or by sending them to
