By Mark Hayhurst 18 Oct 2018

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 for care homes, lunch clubs, hospices and foodbanks.

UK Hand Knitting’s Annabelle Hill said: “Last year we distributed more than 1,500 stockings to organisations all over the country. We hope this is the perfect chance for us to celebrate our craft and we want to get as many people involved as possible to bring a little Christmas cheer to those who need it at this time of year.”

Anyone can get take part simply by making a mini Christmas stocking or sock from left over yarn. UK Hand Knitting has created four special knit patterns, all of which can be found on the UK Hand Knitting website
