World Wide Knit in Public Day

Join Knit for Peace and LoveKnitting this year, as we take over the Flat Planet Café in central London to celebrate World Wide Knit In Public Day.

The event runs from 10am – 2pm on Saturday June 21st and is open to all.  We hope to teach curious passers-by to knit, as well as welcoming more experienced knitters to join in the fun.  The plan is to get everyone knitting squares that will be stitched into charity blankets at the end of the day.  There will be refreshments available, and the odd knitted surprise appearance…

Celebrity knitters will be joining the event throughout the morning, including Katrina Rosen from MillaMia and Debbie Bliss, who will be holding a knitting999 surgery, hoping to help anyone who is stuck with a knitting quandary.


World Wide Knit in Public Day was started in 2005. It began as a way for knitters to come together and enjoy one another’s company.
