become a student Big Knit ambassador

Are you a student with a passion for (knitted, small, hatty) fashion? Then The Big Knit Needs You.

Big knit needs you

We're looking for Big Knit ambassadors across the country's schools, colleges, and universities to organise knitting events to make hats for this year's Big Knit. As the Big Knit ambassador for your student body you'll need to collect as many hats as possible, and send them in to us by the 13th of October.

We'll be running a competition across every school and university which enters, and those ambassadors which present the most hats will win a whole bunch of innocent goodies, as well as being featured in our family newsletter.

(but no, you won't get a smoothie bath)

You can download knit-in invites and guides on how to knit here.

We've also got 5 knitting packs to send out to the first 10 students who get in touch. Don't worry if you've never knitted before, you can learn with our easy how-to-knit-guide.

Please send your final bundles of hats in to:

Big Knit Ambassador Competition
Fruit Towers
1 The Goldhawk Estate
Brackenbury Road
W6 0BA

Any enquiries, please email

The more people that get stuck in, the more money we can raise for Age Concern, making winter warmer for older people.

Now get recruiting - friends, lab partners, study-buddies, roomies (or is that just America?), cast-on, and get knitting.
