Imagine the excitement of opening a box which contains everything that you need to knit an adorable budgie!

This beautifully presented Sparky the Budgie knit kit contains all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Sparky the blue budgie - add your own pair of 4mm (UK 8/ US 6) knitting needles, a yarn darning needle and an ordinary sewing needle, and you're ready to go. 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!

Sparky the budgerigar is 23cm / 9 inches tall - which is about the size of a real budgie/parakeet. So when you've finished knitting him, he's going to be the perfect size to sit and keep you company – and his little posable wire feet mean that he can cling to the object of your choice!

Everything is presented in a stylish and cute 28cm gift box, making this knit kit the perfect gift for a knitter or a parakeet lover - they'll love knitting the budgie, and having a new knitted friend, too!

What's included in your knit kit?

A full colour 6-page printed knitting pattern
5 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
2 different colours of 2 ply yarn
Polyester toy stuffing
Black beads
Black cotton thread
Pipe cleaner
Copper craft wire
A 38mm “pretty boy” budgie button badge

Knitting needles are not included as many knitters already own a pair - but if you'd like to add a pair to your kit, they are £2 - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/799290550/4mm-metal-knitting-needles-for-bird-knit

Useful for if you are in lockdown or are sending your kit as a gift to someone who is staying safe at home!

Is Sparky easy to knit?

Yes! He is simply knitted flat on a pair of 4mm(UK 8/ US 6) knitting needles, making him a good 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). The 6 page knitting pattern includes detailed making up instructions and many colour photos to help you on your way. I've included a tutorial on making wire legs, too!

As a budgie fan I love everything about this - and my own non-wool blue budgie Bruno is well catered for too - he seems to have fallen in love with the mirror! Quite what he will make of his knitted counterpart remains to be seen... This arrived very promptly and well packaged. Highly recommended!

Present for my mum. We had a budgie called bluebell that looked like this. She was chuffed to bits!!

Super fast delivery and great kit! I'm a knitting newbie but spent my whole Saturday crafting Sparky and I'm already looking at new wool for another one. Perfect, thank you!

Was delivered on time. It was beautifully packaged and everything was included, so you could start it straight away (just needed knitting needles) it was a joy to make, very clear instructions. Would make a brilliant gift, if you could bear to part with him.
