Knitivity is our Christmas fundraising campaign that invites you to donate the benefit of your skills as a knitter or crocheter to support the work of Beaumont Hospital.

Each year, we introduce a range of new patterns which allow you to try your hand at different projects. And when you have them completed, you can choose to:

return them to us Freepost and we'll sell them here in Beaumont hospital and online throughout our website -
drop them to any Haven Pharmacy countrywide (from where they will be sold with 100% of cost returned to BHF)
sell them locally to family, friends or colleagues and return the funds generated to us directly.

Our 2018 patterns have been created for us predominantly by Lucy Finnegan of the Yarn Loft in Bandon, Co Cork - thanks Lucy!

With six projects in total to choose from, we have tried to vary the degree of difficulty. We are hoping that people - no matter how rusty or even if they are total newcomers - will pick up their needles and get knitting or crocheting to help fund medical equipment that is vital to the comfort and care of patients in Beaumont Hospital.

You can download our patterns below but please also register to receive your Knitivity pack so that we can send you out the other elements you will need to take part.
