Coo… Coo… ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!! It’s Halloween (my favourite day of the year) and for your viewing pleasure I have convinced my fibre-feathered friend, Cooey the Pigeon (star of my Stitch London book) to take part in a handmade Halloween gallery.

(Please note: no knitted pigeons or hungry cats were harmed in the making of this series of photos)


If you fancy making your own Cooey and treating her abominably there’s a free Knit the Pigeon kit in the front of every copy of the Stitch London book. The kit contains everything you need to make a Cooey of your own. You’ll have to provide your own blood, guts and dangly eyeball though.

I’d love to see pics of the horrific adventures of your own purly pigeons too. Feel free to upload them to Planet Whodunnknit to share them with the world.

    If I had to pick, “Death by Unexpected Beaded Squid” would be the way to go.

      Cooey would thank you if she wasn’t so busy sewing her guts back in. :)

    Great stuff, Deadly! I laughed out loud at all, but my favorite was by psychedelia. And in 10 seconds on full power. And by thud. And by divine intervention. And by parallel parking. I liked all deaths, really.

    My eleven-year-old son (whose sense of humor is a bit dark) loved your pictures, and I have to admit I did, too. Very clever.
