This beautifully presented Bob the Cardinal knit kit contains all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Bob – just 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!

Everything is presented in a stylish and cute 28cm gift box, making this knit kit the perfect gift for a knitter or a cardinal lover - they'll love knitting the bright red cardinal, and having a new knitted friend, too! There's also a cute Bob button badge included in the kit as a bonus gift.

How big is Bob?

He's 18cm long and will fit perfectly in your hand - he makes the perfect autumn or winter companion!

What's included in the kit?

A 4-page colour printed knitting pattern
Red, scarlet and black DK knitting yarn
Polyester stuffing
Black beads
Black thread
Orange thread
Orange felt
A beak template
A pipe cleaner
A Bob the Cardinal 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 -

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

Is Bob easy to knit?

Yes. He is simply knitted flat on a pair of 4mm(UK 8/ US 6) knitting needles, making him an excellent 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). His beak is made of felt, so a little hand sewing is needed to stitch the two pieces together.
