You may recognise Bill the Pigeon - he is currently starring in the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch advert!
This fun and easy knit kit contains all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Bill the Pigeon!
Bill is based on the friendly flock of pigeons that visit my garden – these sweet natured and intelligent birds are great fun to watch, and helpfully clear up all the food that the other birds drop under the bird feeders. Pigeons are wonderful!
This cute pigeon knit kit contains all the yarn and notions that you need to knit Bill – simply 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 28cm gift box, making this knit kit the perfect gift for a knitter or a pigeon lover - they'll love knitting Bill, and the kit includes a cute Pigeon Club button badge for them to wear, too!
What's included in your knit kit?
A 4-page printed knitting pattern
5 different colours of high quality, soft DK acrylic yarn
Polyester toy stuffing
Black cotton thread
A Pigeon Club 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 Bill easy to knit?
Very. 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. 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).

Perfect kit! As it was my first knitted creature I was worried I’d mess up and run out of yarn but the instructions were clear and there was plenty of yarn. Sent the finished product to my pigeon loving sister before I remembered to take a photo but it turned out so well I have a hard time believing I made it!
So pleased with how Bill turned out. I had a question about his tail and Nicky was really helpful in answering. Now I just have to decide which kit to do next!
I absolutely love this kit. It's beautifully packaged and arrived quickly. I've not done any knitting for years so am hoping it's pretty simple. The badge is great too!
I absolutely loved this project. It’s my first time knitting a plush and it was a dream. The pattern was great to follow, and there was plenty of materials in the kit. Made as a lockdown gift for one of my best friends and it’s safe to say Bill couldn’t have gone to a better home. I’ll definitely be making him some friends in the future. Thank you.
