Lobster Knitting Kit - Red

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! The knitting pattern for the lobster is in The Knitter's Activity Book, so you'll need a copy for the knitting instructions. You can choose whether or not you'd like to include a copy in your kit.

The yarn included in the kit is Stylecraft Life Chunky yarn. The pattern is written for 'How Does It Feel (HDIF) yarn, but you can follow the pattern using the Stylecraft yarn and the finished lobster will be approximately the same size as the original design.
