"KNIT FOR NOWT" A charitable service
THERAPY HAND PUPPETS
AND WORRY MONSTERS
Knit-for-Nowt is a charitable service based in Yorkshire. It appeals 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 made by a dedicated team of volunteer knitters/makers and then donated to Social Work teams and Children's therapists right across the UK.
On this site you'll find details of what we can provide.
THERAPISTS: OUR WAITING LIST IS NOW OPEN. Please go to:
NEW KNITTERS: We have a team of knitters, and at present we don't have spaces available for more. However if you'd like to go on our knitters' waiting list please get in touch via the Contact page. We do currently have space for sewers as we are short of one particular type of sewn monster, so if you can use a sewing machine then please apply.
PATTERNS: From 2022 our patterns are only available to knitters/makers already registered with Knit-for-Nowt. Our patterns are under copyright and may not be used for any commercial gain.
