P/hop is charity knitting project that raises funds for the emergency medical aid organisation Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders.

And it goes a little something like this…..

Incredibly generous designers donate their time and knitting & crochet patterns to p/hop. These patterns are then available for you to download here. The idea  is you donate based on how many hours of pleasure you’ll get from knitting your p/hop pattern. There is no set price for a pattern; you can donate 50p or £50. It’s entirely up to you – P/HOP = PENNIES PER HOUR OF PLEASURE!

You can donate in pounds, euros or dollars  here.

p/hop is the brain child of Natalie Fergie, UK knitter and dyer, and has grown in leaps and bounds over the last year to include p/hop swapping, knitting events and the one year birthday blog-a-long. It is open to anyone to get involved and you are more than welcome to have a go at developing it in new ways. Or, you can just enjoy the wonderful patterns!

You can keep up to date with the latest p/hop news you can follow us on twitter, join the p/hop Ravelry group or keep an eye on the p/hop blog.

p/hop is based in the MSF UK office with a volunteer co-ordinator working in the MSF office one day a week. If you would like to get involved or know more please email Larissa.

Happy knitting!
