Lobster Knitting Kit - 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! 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.

You can now choose between different yarns to knit your blue lobster in. There's my 100% wool How Does It Feel (HDIF) yarn in light blue, or you can pick Rico Essentials Mega Wool Chunky yarn in royal blue. The pattern is written for the HDIF yarn, but you can follow the pattern using the Rico yarn and the finished lobster will be approximately the same size as the original design.
