Knit-for-Nowt is a charitable service based in Yorkshire.  It appeals to knitters for  knitted, crocheted, or sewn hand puppets and "worry monsters", which are used by therapists to help children suffering from abuse, neglect, bereavement or other serious problems. There is a huge need for these. They are donated to Social Work teams right across the UK.


On this site you can find details of what items are needed, get inspiration for your own creativity, and get full details about the multitude of different characters you could create!


Let's see if together we can make a real and lasting difference to children's lives.  By making these items you will be directly helping - what could be more worthwhile?


Knitting or sewing for Knit-for-Nowt means helping our own. Wherever you live we'd welcome your knitted contributions.
