daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: innocent drinks, innocent smoothies, the big knit

innocent's Big Knit 2012 x Daisybutter.
It is very very rarely that you'll see me flounce around in a hat. My brother and I have resigned ourselves to the fact that hats just don't work on us, whilst my sister can sport a bobble hat, bowler, cap, etc. to effortless chic.

A few weeks ago, I was asked to get involved in the yearly campaign that innocent Drinks run - The Big Knit. The Big Knit invited ten fashion bloggers to design a hat this year, and the idea behind the campaign is to market smoothie bottles with miniature woolly hats, raising money to keep old people warm throughout the winter. So far, they've raised over £1m for Age UK, which is pretty impressive, right? I actually have quite the collection of innocent hats, I use them to sit atop my phone for some extra winter charm, so this was the perfect fit for little Daisybutter!

Simple in design, I opted for mid-toned pink hue with a huge cream bobble to inject some colour to the duller and drab months, along with a knit pattern that I used to use a lot when studying Fashion Design 'back in the day'. It's incredible to see my designs come to life, and even more so to think that real people will be snapping it up!

  10. That hat is friggen adorable!! lol so cute :)

    My Favourite thing about winter.. hmm.. if only it snowed here in Australia so that i could have a white christmas.. that would be awesome.. but my fav thing about winter is the fact that i know that Jesus my saviour was born on christmas and i give thumbs up to people who actually acknowledge that and don't take presents and spending time with their families on that special day for granted. Its about love, peace and joy with the people you love and of course can't forget the hot choc with marshmellows... yum :D ... so i guess i don't only have one fav thing about winter. :)

    Great giveaway, I'm so excited for winter, so the only problem is writing down just one favorite aspect of this time of year...
    I love the snow, and my coat, my wellingtons, and my fluffy bed socks. I love my onesie, lots of hot chocolate's, Christmas time, wearing my favorite glittery party dress, watching films around our fire, wrapping the present's. The Laughter, the smiles, and my friends and family X

  23. My favourite thing about winter is definitely the food - mince pies, mulled wine, Christmas dinner and the days of snacking it surrounds and of course a cute advent calendar!

  24. One of my favourite things about winter is being out on a cold, dry day packed in my hat, scarf and winter clothes and also feeling the wind slightly stinging against my cheeks. Doesn't quite sound pleasant but I love entering a warm place afterwards and then feeling the contrast between still feeling cold and the warmth.:)

  26. That hat is just adorable! My favourite things about winter have got to be wearing cosy jumpers and having an excuse to drink copious amounts of hot chocolate.

  27. My favourite thing about winter is definitely the cold, just because, I personally think that it opens up so many possibilities that you don't get any other time of the year. For example, shopping for cardigans, drinking hot drinks any time of the day or night and just getting comfy at home, either with that special someone or under the snuggliest blanket or onesie. It's lovely visiting people at home and not feeling pressured to go out and find something to do. Everything is so much more relaxed when it's not hot and uncomfortable :)

    Good luck everyone! Happy Winter!

  30. Ahh what a perfect hat! I am rather addicted to bobbles on hats and I dont know why, probably because when I see them I always think of bunny tails! Anyway, my favourite thing about winter is snuggling on the couch with a good book and a yummy hot choc! xxx katie_moody@hotmail.co.uk

  31. I love the hat! It's so cute, and the colours go really well together. :)

    I love winter because you can wear so many layers and snuggle up and eat so much food and you have a good excuse - hibernation! ;)
