We were lucky enough to be invited to create the two jumpers featured in the movie and have now launched the official Eddie hat as a free download.
The movie stars Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton in the title role, is directed by Dexter Fletcher and produced by Matthew Vaughan. Eddie The Eagle launches on 1st April 2016 in cinemas across the UK.
We have teamed up with The Mission To Seafarers and are asking knitters all over the UK to make one Eddie hat for the charity in any colour before the end of June. As a thank you to anyone knitting a hat and sending it to:
Please include your name, address and email address.
All entries will receive a 10% voucher code for their next purchase of Yarn Stories yarns and patterns.
We already have a few hats and will be setting up a Pinterest board featuring all the hats and using #iKnitForEddie in all tweets and instagram posts.
So in the spirit of Eddie The Eagle, get your pins at the ready and take a flying leap for charity.
