The Curious Project - Catch of the Day Knitting Kit

Shell-ebrate, with Curious Project bag 23. This is a quintessential Sincerely Louise project, inspired by Lou Taylor’s illustrated crab clue! We're really excited to reveal what was in out mystery kit, in the list below, and there are still some kits left. The patterns are one off designs never released as individual patterns. Once the kits sell out, they won't be available again.

For the first time ever we've collaborated with not one, but two amazing artists, designer Lou Taylor and independent yarn dyers Big Knitters. This kit includes an exclusive hand dyed yarn, making each project truly unique.

Catch of the Day will bring a touch of the seaside home. It’s one shell of a project!


  • 35g Big Knitters 'Crabulous' hand-dyed 100% tencel yarn
  • 3.5mm (US 4) knitting needles (optional)
  • 2 x 10mm toy eyes and washers
  • Cherry wood trophy plaque
  • Small amount of toy stuffing

SKILL LEVEL: Easy to intermediate. This project is knitted on 3.5mm (US 4) needles, however it’s not an intensive knit.

STITCHES USED: Knit, purl, increase, decrease. The project is knitted flat, so there’s no working in the round. 

PLEASE NOTE: The Curious Project subscriptions, starting with the Spring Zest kit, are now sold out. If you are a subscription customer, please click here for more information.



Lou Taylor creates imaginative colourful illustrations, which take life as jewellery, silk scarves and prints. She takes a playful and graphic approach to subjects as diverse as lobsters and stag beetles to lipsticks, swans and swimming pools.



Big Knitters are independent hand dyers from Sunderland, North East England. Ella and Kim love creating bright yarns, inspired by everything from film and television to cake and the universe. 

Yarn colours may vary slightly in real life depending on your screen display.

Warning: this is not a toy and is not suitable for children under 13 years old. This kit contains small parts.
