Description

Are you looking for an unusual gift? Imagine the excitement of opening a box which contains everything that you need to knit a cute Blue Footed Booby!

This beautifully presented Blue Footed Booby knit kit is handmade in the Scottish Highlands, and contains all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Bryan – just add your own pair of 4mm 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!

Did you know that Blue Footed Boobies are very proud of their lovely blue feet, and show them off in a delightful courtship dance? Bryan the Blue Footed Booby is no exception. I named him after Bryan Ferry, who is also known for his smooth moves.

Your bird knitting kit is presented in a large, stylish gift box, and bundled up in plastic-free, recyclable packaging. This booby knit kit is the perfect, original gift for a knitter, birder, or booby fan - they'll love knitting Bryan, and the kit includes a cute booby badge for them to brighten up a coat or a bag, too!

Need to know

Is Bryan suitable for beginners? Very much so. He is simply knitted flat on a pair of 4mm knitting needles, making him 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 5-page printed knitting pattern
5 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
Polyester toy stuffing
Black beads
Black cotton thread
Pipe cleaner
Yellow felt
A booby 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, 4mm 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.
Bryan the Booby is 22cm tall.

Hello I’m Nicky! Have you ever thought about knitting a puffin, but wouldn’t know where to start? Maybe I can help! I’m a lifelong bird nerd, nature lover, and a self-taught knitter. I design and make fun and easy bird knit kits, using the birds that surround me every day in the Scottish highlands as inspiration. My kits are designed to be relaxing and simple, perfect to inspire a beginner knitter, or as a thoughtful gift to a bird-loving friend.
