New pattern- Sweet Sheep

I am so pleased to finally publish my next pattern- Sweet Sheep. It's available in my shop, Hedgehog Lane and also on Ravelry and Etsy.  It's my 6th pattern to release and I hope to publish a few more during October. Here's the whole flock of sheep- 

And here are two together- I love the black sheep.

I wrote patterns for three sizes of sheep and I really like the way their wooly coats turned out. To add their fleece, I lightly  needle felted wool bits onto the sheep after it was felted and stuffed. 

The pattern has been popular so far, apparently other knitters like sheep as much as I do! Stay tuned for the nesting dolls, that's the next pattern to be published. They've changed since I posted about them last and I am so pleased to have come up with a design that is just as cute as I was hoping for.
