Beneduck Cumberquack is a very friendly mallard duck, and he’s just the right size to sit in your hand for a comforting squeeze. I love mallard ducks, they are one of those birds that we see almost everywhere, but rarely stop to appreciate just how beautiful they are. The males with their shiny green heads, the beautiful brown-speckled females - next time you visit a park with mallards, take a minute to take in all their colours and feather patterns. Or why not knit a mallard duck or two?

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 cute mallard duck 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, and a pack of 2 Pony darning needles are £1. 

Your duck 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 mallard duck fan - they'll love knitting Beneduck, and the kit includes a cute duck button badge for them to wear, too!

Is Beneduck suitable for beginners?

Very much so. He is simply knitted flat on a pair of 4mm (UK 8/ US 6) knitting needles, making him an excellent project for an absolute beginner: no need to knit in the round. 

Basic knitting skills that you’ll need to know:

Knit stitch, purl 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.

Beneduck Cumberquack the duck is 13cm tall.
