Knit Kits

Young adults undergoing cancer treatment deal with a combination of physical and emotional trials. Knitting can help. We've donated over 400 knitting kits to hospitals and individuals to teach them how to knit and (hopefully) make a difference in their quality of life.

About the Knit kits

We created Give-A-Sht Knit Kits as a response to our friend's Leukemia diagnosis at 25. Amid the chaos, we introduced her to knitting for a slice of normalcy. Learning with friends, a therapeutic lightbulb lit up for all, offering a respite from cancer. This impact spurred us to help young adults facing cancer, bridging physical and emotional challenges. Partnering with hospitals, our program aims to enhance quality of life during cancer treatment.

Each Give-A-Sh*t Knit Kit includes everything a patient may need in order to complete a knitted project:

  • Yarn and needles donated by Lion Brand Yarn
  • Instructions on how to knit, including detailed videos donated by Hive Studio
  • Patterns designed in-house and by donated contest submissions
  • A Give-A-Sh*t Tote Bag, donated by our friends at Emulsion Printhouse
