Giant Animal Heads

Giant Lion Head Knitting Kit - Project 6 from First Time Knits

Knit your own giant lion head to look striking on any wall, with the sixth project from First Time Knits. I started my career designing faux taxidermy so how could I not include one in my book! You’ll need the First Time Knits book for the knitting pattern, if you don’t already have it, and then you use the materials in this kit to make it. There is an option to buy the kit with or without the book. 

The yarn is an alpaca and acrylic mix, which is a lovely texture. The lion head introduces the use of the loop stitch. The First Time Knits book includes a step-by-step picture tutorial for the loop stitch, and an accompanying video tutorial.
