Innocent Smoothie Bottle Hats for Age UK

Did you answer the call?

Innocent Smoothie Bottle Hats

I did but unfortunately I saw the request a little late so have only had time to make 3 hats.

It is such a wonderful idea, the Innocent Drinks company will donate 25p to Age UK for every little hat they receive. Isn’t that great? It is called The Big Knit, I would have loved to make more but sadly have run out of time.

There were even links to patterns. I made the Tortoise and the Owl.

I did try to make my own Frog but I think I will work on the pattern as there is room for improvement.

I was so inspired by this post on Love Lucie enticing we crafters to make hats for smoothie bottles in return for the 25p donation. Now I have the link to the patterns I will make them throughout the year in readiness for next time (I hope there is a next time). They do seem to have done it for a few years now according to some of the other posts I have read.

Check out some of the links below, so many cute little hats!

A Beanie Hat to Go With My Scarf

Well I know it doesn’t exactly match in terms of the pattern but I think it works with the matching colours.

Although a beanie hat is a simple little project I have never made one before so I am really happy with how it has turned out, and it actually fits! I always have problems with getting hats to sit comfortably which is really frustrating as I love to wear them.

Crochet Beanie Hat Clusters Moving into crochet clusters for the body of the hat.

Crochet Beanie Hat Stripes Then finishing with some more of my favourite, stripes.

I have never tried to photograph anything as difficult as this before, this one of the hat on it’s own look rather sad but it does show how it looks from the front.

Lastly I apologise to all those who have asked about the pattern for this scarf because I was very remiss and forgot to add it the previous post, so here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Queen Anne’s Lace Scarf Pattern
