Steve the Chaffinch is a perky, cheeky fellow and at 18cm long he’s just the right size to hop in your hand for a bit of a squeeze. Would you like to knit him? It's easy – you'll find everything that you need to knit a cuddly chaffinch inside this fun bird 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 cute chaffinch  – 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!

You’ll need a pair of 4mm knitting needles, and a yarn darning needle to make Steve. If you'd like to add these to your kit, each pair of 25cm long high quality Pony aluminium knitting needles are £2, and a pack of 2 Pony darning needles are £1. 

Your chaffinch 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 chaffinch fan - they'll love knitting Steve, and the kit includes some cute bird stickers to brighten up their day.

What's included in your knit kit?

  • A full colour printed knitting pattern
  • 6 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
  • Polyester toy stuffing
  • Beads and thread for eyes
  • A pipecleaner
  • Bird stickers

Is Steve suitable for beginners?

Yes. He is simply knitted flat, on 4mm knitting needles, making him a good project for a 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.

Steve the Chaffinch is 18cm tall.
