Bringing people together to help those in need

The Knit Collective is a New York City based initiative building community around our shared love of knitting and our desire to help those in need.

We create and collect simple knitted items, like hats, scarves and blankets.

Partnering with established non-profit organizations, we ensure our donations are delivered safely into the hands of recipients. 

Current project

We are knitting for Knit Aid, a UK based organization set up in response to the refugee crisis in Europe.

Knit Aid will distribute our knitted donations to people living in refugee camps in France, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria.
