Say hello to Albert the Robin! He's a very cute boy who loves to sit in your hand for a cuddle (or to hop into someone else's hand to make the perfect Christmas gift). Would you like to knit him? It's easy – you'll find everything that you need to knit a cuddly robin inside this fun knit kit! 

Each bird knitting kit is carefully handmade and packed by me, and will contain all the yarn and notions that you need to knit a cuddly robin  – 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!

You’ll need a pair of 4mm knitting needles, a pair of 2.75mm knitting needles, and a yarn darning needle to make Albert. If you'd like to add these to your kit, each pair of 25cm long high quality Pony aluminium knitting needles are £2, and a pack of 2 Pony darning needles are £1. 

Your robin knitting kit is presented in a large, stylish gift box, and bundled up in plastic-free, recyclable packaging. This bird knit kit is the perfect, original gift for a knitter, birder, or robin fan - they'll love knitting Albert, and the kit includes some cute robin stickers for them to add as the finishing touch to festive gifts, too!

What's included in your knit kit?

  • A full colour printed knitting pattern
  • 5 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
  • Polyester toy stuffing
  • Beads and thread for eyes
  • Cute knitted robin stickers

Is Albert suitable for beginners?

Very much so. He is simply knitted flat, on 4mm and 2.75mm knitting needles, making him an excellent project for a beginner: no need to knit in the round. 

Basic knitting skills that you’ll 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. Head on over to my how to knit tutorials if you need any advice!

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

The gift box measures 28cm x 19cm x 8cm.

Albert the robin is 11cm tall.
