You can get the pattern online at www.woollychicdesigns.co.uk with £2 from every sale going to the cause.

Helen reckons that, depending on crochet experience, the exclusive beard should only take a couple of hours to create.

And she’ll be modelling some of her creations with the ‘make your face look funny for money’ theme of this year’s appeal in mind at a ‘crafternoon’ session planned for the Knit Knacks Wool Shop in Hitchin’s Bridge Street next Friday, March 13.

Mum of three Helen teaches crochet classes at Knit Knacks and runs a Crochet and Cake group at Just Desserts next door every Tuesday afternoon during school term time.

Next week’s event will run from 10am to 5pm and for a donation to Comic Relief you can enjoy tea, cake and craft and an opportunity to make squares for a Red Nose Day blanket, woolly beards, moustaches or crocheted red noses.

Materials will be provided together with tea, coffee and red nose cakes.
