This fun and easy seagull knit kit is sure to put a smile on a bird-lover’s face.

Big Jeff is surprisingly soft and cuddly for a gull, and just the right size to sit in your hand for a comforting squeeze. Give him some chips and you'll have a friend for life!

Jeff is based on my much-loved gull friend who used to appear at my window every morning when I lived in Sussex. You may have seen him on my Instagram stories. I was friends with Jeff for 7 years, he used to tap on my kitchen window throughout the day as a gentle reminder for more snacks to be put out. He ended up bringing his partner Mrs Jeff along too, who had a great talent for flying off with birdfeeders and dropping them in a nearby pub garden. I miss them both so much, but at least I have Jeff's knitted namesake to keep his legacy going. Seagulls are so smart and entertaining!

Each bird knitting kit is carefully handmade and packed by me, and will contain all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Big Jeff  – 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 seagull 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 seagull fan - they'll love knitting Jeff, and the kit includes a cute CHIPS! button badge for them to wear, too!

A 4-page printed knitting pattern

Is Big Jeff suitable for beginners?

Very much so. He is simply knitted flat on a pair of 4mm 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:

Stocking stitch, increasing by knitting into the front and back of a stitch (inc 1) and decreasing by knitting 2 stitches together (k2tog). 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.

Big Jeff the gull is 17cm long, 16cm tall.
