UK Hand Knitting charity Christmas stockings

National Knitting Week - Christmas stocking appeal

It's National Knitting Week from 3rd to 9th October, and UK Hand Knitting would like your help with a charity project.

3rd October 2016

UK Hand Knitting would like you to join in National Knitting Week and knit up some mini Christmas stockings to make into bunting.

UK Hand Knitting want to bring a little Christmas spirit to care homes and lunch clubs, by decorating them with festive bunting. If you're able to take part you can use any spare yarn to make a mini Christmas stocking or sock. You'll find two free knitting patterns from UK Hand Knitting, and a crochet pattern from Raveler RhonddaM, on the UK Hand Knitting website.

If you're visiting the Knitting and Stitching Shows at Alexandra Palace or Harrogate you can drop off your stockings at the UK Hand Knitting stand. Or send it to:

Christmas Stocking Appeal
60 Bridge Road East
Welwyn Garden City
Herts AL7 1JU

The deadline for stockings is 9th December, and UK Hand Knitting will make them up into the bunting.
