A Knit Gift With A Story

December 1, 2016

With Thanksgiving over, it's time to make knit gifts for the upcoming holidays. If you have a lovable little one in your life, we might just have the perfect present. Our Royal Petite Knit Kits feature six precious stuffed animals made out of 100% Royal Alpaca. This pattern is advanced beginner on size 2 needles, and has the choice of being knit flat or in the round. At approximately 5 inches tall with less than 100 yards of yarn to knit, it's a do-able yet impressive project.

The best part is that each animal has already has a life story, here's their backgrounds so you can pick the right personality for your youngster. See what adventures they go on next!

These knit kits are available for a limited time only, find your nearest yarn store to find them before they're gone.


Georgitte the Giraffe

Delightfully sweet and soft, Georgitte hails from Cameroon and spends her days both literally and figuratively with her head in the clouds. Munching on acacia tree leaves (her favorite) plenty of time for daydreaming. She can be a bit clumsy—expect her to occasionally upset the teacup or knock over your papers— but she’s so charming we promise you won’t mind that one bit.



Emilie the Elephant

Like most elephants Emilie is a social sort; she craves companionship and never fails to entertain with stories of her adventures in her homeland of Botswana. She's a thoughtful girl, so you can rest assured she'll never forget your birthday or anniversary—keeping track of those types of things is important to her. Elephants are a close-knit bunch and Emilie is no exception; you'll find she’s quite generous with hugs and handholding.



Hector the Hippopotamus

Hailing from the wilds of Kazungula, Hector is a reserved sort of fellow, having spent his early years in the shadow of his many older brothers and sisters (hippos are a hierarchical bunch, you see). He's a lover of long soaks in the bath, a voracious reader, and always up for a thoughtful discussion about current events. He’s also a very good listener, and will drop everything to be there when you need him.



Lisette the Lion

Lisette has a reserved nature, one befitting her place as heiress to the jungle kingdom. Her family has long ruled the savanna but she’s too well bred to show the slightest bit of conceit about that. She does tend to sleep for long stretches (lions do that, you know) but once roused she’s an endless source of sparkling conversation and spot-on fashion advice.



Marcel the Monkey

Playful and prone to mischief, Marcel hails from East Africa, where he has a reputation for being goodhearted but prone to trouble. (Like the time he decided to have a bit of fun with his royal mothers yarn stash and ended up tied to the baobab tree). Invite him into your home and you're guaranteed a bit of fun and adventure.

René the Rhinoceros

Sweet, soft and fond of shoots, leaves, and mud wallows, René hails from the southern regions of Africa (Cote d’Ivoire to be exact) where his family rules with wisdom, kind acts, and fairness for all. Like most rhinos he doesn't see so well, but he’s an excellent listener, content to offer quiet companionship by the bedside or on the bookshelf.
