  • This adorable cockatiel knit kit is the perfect gift for a bird loving friend
  • Handmade in the Scottish highlands
  • Contains all the supplies that you need to knit a sweet cockatiel (just add needles)
  • Free UK shipping

Jarvis is a very smart and stylish cockatiel, and with his wire feet and tail, he’s very poseable, so he’ll be happy to hop up on a perch in your home, or up on your hand for a bit of a fuss.

Jarvis may look a little trickier than some of the other birds that I’ve designed, but don’t worry - he’s still very simple to knit! There’s no knitting in the round and full instructions are given to help you make him up.

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 cuddly cockatiel friend – No need to order all the different yarns and bits and pieces. 

If you'd like to add needles to your kit, a pair of high quality 4mm Pony aluminium knitting needles are £2, and a pack of 2 Pony darning needles are £1. Please note that you will also need a 4mm crochet hook (or similar size) to attach the lovely crest feathers to his head. At the moment I haven’t got any of these in stock so you’ll need to grab one from your stash. (There’s no crochet involved, you’re simply using the needle to pull the yarn through the knitted material).

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

What's included in your knit kit?

  • A full-colour, 6-page printed knitting pattern
  • 4 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
  • Polyester toy stuffing
  • Orange felt, and matching thread 
  • Black beads and thread for eyes
  • A pipe cleaner
  • A Jarvis Cockatiel button badge

Is Jarvis suitable for beginners?

Yes, he is. 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. Because of his wire feet, and crest, he’s slightly more of a challenge to sew up and complete than some of the simpler birds, but full instructions are included.

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.

Jarvis Cockatiel is 29cm tall, including his tail.
