Say hi to George the great tit! He's a very smart and colourful bird who can't wait to hop into your hand for a squeeze! (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 all the materials that you need to knit a cuddly great 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 colourful, cuddly great tit  – 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 bird knitting kit is presented in a large, stylish gift box, and bundled up in plastic-free, recyclable packaging. This great tit knit kit is the perfect, original gift for a knitter, birder, or garden birdwatcher - they'll love knitting George, and the kit includes a cute great tit button badge for them to wear, too!

  • 6 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
  • Polyester toy stuffing
  • Beads and thread for eyes

Is George 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:

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.

George the Great Tit is 12cm tall.
