If you are looking for something a little different for a first knitting project this cuddly bear is perfect. Knitted in beautiful, 100% British, pure wool, it is softly stuffed which makes it deliciously floppy and huggable.

Level 1 Absolute beginner knitting kits are all designed from knit stitch squares or rectangles, no shaping, no complicated stitches to confuse you, just the very basics you need to know to start knitting. The levels are designed to build on each other to increase your skills and confidence.

The kit has step-by-step instructions for how to cast on, do the knit stitch, and cast off, and another leaflet shows you how to put the finished bear together.

There is a 'Handmade by me' label that you can use if you are gifting the bear to someone, and the finished bear can be packed in the original box.

Please note that because of the slightly fluffy texture of the wool we do not recommend the finished bear for small babies .

The kit includes 6.5 mm wooden knitting needles

Choose from 12 beautiful colours reminiscent of a weekend in the Cotswolds, where we are based. Choose from – Ice-Cream, Winter Walk, Cotswold Stone, Pheasant, Roaring Fire, Rambling Roses, Sparkling Stream, Blue Skies, Country Green, Drake Green, Frosty Morning, or Night Sky.

We haven’t used this yet as it was a gift but it arrived promptly and was beautifully packaged in the box. The needles, wool and instructions were of high quality and my mum can’t wait to make it.
