Knitting received from you is very much appreciated by the seafarers and is sent out to our port centres on a regular basis.
We appreciate all the knitting received and all the hard work that goes into it, we know how much it means to everyone. Thank you for your continued support.
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 for items that seafarers practically need for their day to day working lives.
Items that deviate from these patterns may not prove useful for seafarer needs.

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.
