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!

Each beautifully presented knitting kit is carefully handmade and packed by me, and will contain all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Bryan the Blue Footed Booby  – 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 4mm Pony aluminium knitting needles are £2, and a pack of 2 Pony darning needles are £1.

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!

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. Head on over to my how to knit tutorials if you need any advice!
