Say hello to the Highland Cow, the most rustic and rugged addition to the Sincerely Louise herd. The Highland Cow uses lots of loop stitches to create it's hair. If you’ve not used loop stitch before, a photo tutorial is included in the pattern. Everything you need to knit your giant Highland Cow head is included in the kit - even the stuffing!
The kit is now available in Stylecraft Special XL Tweed Super Chunky yarn in orange tweed with flecks of colour running, as well as the Rico Creative Twist Super Chunky in camel option. Both yarns achieve the same tension and same size of finished knit.
