#31 Sheep is the perfect fingering or sock weight toy to put your sock yarn (new or leftover) to a fun use that isn’t socks.
The sheep is a fun and fast knit. The sheep is constructed by starting at the bottom and working seamlessly and in one-piece all the way to the top of the sheep’s head. This is the first time I have used this construction for the head and it worked wonderfully!
The stitch pattern is simple and entertaining and perfect for the yarn.
The sheep would be cute in any self-striping yarns with long or short repeats.
Magazine includes waist, hip, and length measurements Additional gauges for each stitch pattern also included.
