Knit to support the 10 million people with arthritis in the UK

This March, join our amazing community of knitters taking on this challenge.

This challenge is fully flexible so you can decide what you knit and adapt it to suit you! 

You set your own target, by trying to knit as much as you can throughout March or by committing to knit a specific amount of time a day. For example, this could be taking on one long knitting pattern to be completed by the end of March or aiming to knit lots of smaller items that can be given to friends in exchange for donations. 

If you are ever stuck for inspiration, our March Knitting Challenge Facebook group can provide you with all the support and advice you need throughout the challenge. If you want to crochet instead of knitting, you can do that too!


Around 10 million people in the UK are living with arthritis. It can affect people of all ages - even children and teenagers. Living with arthritis can be challenging - chronic pain can make everyday tasks, like making a cup of tea, really difficult. It is often dismissed, and this can lead to isolation and frustration. Join our community, coming together to make lives better.
