Sleepy sailor doll craft kit is packed full of all the lovely ingredients needed to knit a soft cuddly doll, dreaming of the high seas.
Using only knit and purl stitches, this kit is surprisingly simple to make. Chunky yarn and thick bamboo knitting needles means he knits up satisfyingly fast so is a perfect weekend or holiday project. The smart hand-packed kit box contains everything you need (except a metal needle for sewing on the buttons) and our easy-to-follow step-by-step instruction 'recipe' (accompanied by colour photographs) will take you through every stage of knitting, making up and decorating a sailor doll in red wellies, stripy trousers and a cuddly stripy scarf, ready to be taken on adventures!
Tied with a handwritten tag and wooden heart, and decorated with stars, the kit or knitted-up dolly make a lovely child's birthday gift. (You could also weight down the finished sailor to make a very cute sleepy doorstop!)
Kit contains plenty of soft chunky yarn in four colours, thick 4mm bamboo knitting needles, thread, spotty buttons, safe darning needle, stuffing, and of course fully illustrated instructions. Age 6+ and perfect for young or learner knitters who have caught the knitting bug, mastered the basics and are ready for a larger project.
