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! 

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 blue tit friend – 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.

If you'd like to add needles to your kit, a pair of high quality 25cm long 4mm Pony aluminium knitting needles are £2, a 2.75mm pair are also £2, and a pack of 2 Pony darning needles are £1. 

Your blue tit 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, bird watcher, or garden bird fan - they'll love knitting Barbara, and the kit includes a cute blue tit button badge for them to wear, too!

Is Barbara suitable for beginners?

Very much so. She is simply knitted flat, on 4mm and 2.75mm knitting needles, 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. Head on over to my how to knit tutorials if you need any advice!

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

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.
