The Big Knit – Quackers the Duck

I haven’t had a little play with these little hats for Innocent Drinks and Age UK for a while.

But while on lockdown, I thought I might as well have a go at making a few more designs.

25p for each hat made goes to this great charity.

I’ve got 17 other designs which can be found here.
