Weโ€™ve partnered with the RSPB to bring you a knitted version of one of our most-loved British birds.

The Puffinโ€™s beak, cheeks, head, back and belly are worked in one piece and then sewn up. The wings, feet and tail are each made up of two identical knitted pieces sewn together and then sewn onto the Puffinโ€™s body. The pattern starts at the beak, which is made in two pieces that are then joined together to form the front of the face.
