Knit mini hats based on The Mary Rose!

You've probably noticed in the Autumn that Innocent smoothies are given little knitted hats. These bottles are part of Innocent's Big Knit, which raises money for Age UK.

We thought a great way to support this scheme would be by designing some mini hats of our own and encourage you to take part. So if you fancy joining in with a Tudor twist, download the patterns to make a mini Tudor hat, Hatch or the emblem of the Mary Rose today and get knitting!
