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:  At the moment it's not possible for you to request items, as our waiting list is currently closed.  Please "Follow" us on Facebook to get an alert when we open the list again. 


NEW KNITTERS:  We have a team of knitters, and at present we don't have spaces available for more. We're also sorry that from March 2022 we're unable to take any more knitters onto our knitters' waiting list, as so many kind folk have volunteered, so sorry.

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.
