Giant Lobster Knitting Kit

Knit your own giant lobster with this knitting kit, from my book The Knitter’s Activity Book. You’ll need the book for the 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.
