Say hello to Henrietta the Little Brown Hen! She's a very sweet girl, who likes nothing better than a cuddle and a sunny yard to scratch around in! Would you like to knit Henrietta? It's easy – you'll find everything that you need to knit a cuddly chicken inside this fun knit kit! 

Each chicken knitting kit is carefully handmade and packed by me, and will contain all the yarn and notions that you need to knit a cuddly brown hen 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 brown hen 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 chicken fan - they'll love knitting Henrietta, and the kit includes some cute chicken stickers to brighten up their day, too.

I've added instructions for making different-coloured hens for when you've finished knitting Henrietta. It's a great way to use up any odds and ends of DK yarn in your stash. There's a handful of hens that bustle around the village where I live - I'm always delighted when one pops up in the garden, wandering around under the bird feeder, looking for treats. They are all such big personalities, and all different lovely colours, too.  

Is Henrietta suitable for beginners?

Very much so. She is simply knitted flat, making her a relaxing 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). Head on over to my how to knit tutorials if you need any advice!

  • A full colour printed knitting pattern
  • 4 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
