Description

Say hello to Barbara the blue tit! She's a very sweet and colourful bird who loves to sit in your hand for a cuddle (or to hop into someone else's hand to make a thoughtful gift). Would you like to knit her? It's easy – you'll find everything that you need to knit a cuddly blue tit inside this fun knit kit!

This beautifully presented blue tit knit kit is carefully handmade and packed by me in the Scottish Highlands, and contains all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Barbara – just add your own pair of 4mm knitting needles, 2.75mm knitting needles and a yarn darning needle, and you're ready to go. No need to order all the different yarns and bits and pieces – you can sit back, relax, and start knitting straight away. It's all there for you!

Blue tits are one of my favourite garden birds, so I just had to create a knitted version. They are so tiny and colourful, and brighten up my bird feeder!

Your bird knitting kit is presented in a large, stylish gift box, and bundled up in plastic-free, recyclable packaging. This blue tit knit kit is the perfect, original gift for a knitter, or a garden bird watcher - they'll love knitting Barbara, and the kit includes a cute blue tit badge so they can brighten up their lapel or bag, too!

Need to know

Is Barbara suitable for beginners? Very much so. She is simply knitted flat, making her an excellent project for a beginner: no need to knit in the round. Basic skills that you need to know: stocking stitch, increasing by knitting into the front and back of a stitch (inc 1) and decreasing by knitting 2 stitches together (k2tog). There’s colour-changing on some rows, so you will need to use Intarsia technique to change yarns mid-row.

What's included in your knit kit?

A full colour printed knitting pattern
7 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
Polyester toy stuffing
Beads and thread for eyes
A blue tit button badge

Knitting needles and darning needles are not included as many knitters already own a pair - but if you'd like to add these to your kit, pairs of 4mm and 2.75mm Pony aluminium knitting needles are £2 a pair, and a pack of 2 Pony darning needles are £1.

All kit and parcel packaging is plastic-free, and recyclable.

The gift box measures 28cm x 19cm x 8cm.
Barbara the Blue Tit is 12cm tall.
