Lobster Knitting Kit - Red or Blue

Knit your own lovely lobster, from my book The Knitter’s Activity Book. Knitted from head to tail in chunky yarn, it's a cuddly knit that knits up quicker than you'd expect! 

You can now choose between different yarns and colours to knit your lobster in. There's my 100% wool How Does It Feel (HDIF) yarn in blue or red, or you can pick a teal acrylic option, or a blend of acrylic/wool in a scarlet red. The pattern is written in the HDIF yarn, but you can follow the pattern using the Stylecraft yarns and the finished lobster will be approximately the same size as the original design.
