You can help seafarers all over the world by joining our amazing group of knitters!
Please note, we are no longer accepting knitting at our IHQ in London. The destination for all knitting has permanently changed to our centre in South Shields, where they will be distributed to appropriate ports once received.
The knitted items we receive help seafarers arriving in the UK and around the world during the long, cold days and nights spent on the open seas. From woolly hats to fingerless mittens, each knitted item finds a home and the seafarers they’re matched to are extremely grateful for the extra warmth!
Please see our Knitting Patterns document which includes an exhaustive list of the knitting products seafarers ask for. This list of patterns has been complied to reflect exactly what items seafarers practically need for their day to day working lives.
Items that deviate from these patterns may not prove useful for seafarer needs.
