sweet sheep knitting pattern
I have always wanted to have a small flock of sheep. These tiny friends will tide me over until I buy a farm. The sheep are sturdy and stand on their own.
This booklet includes patterns for three sheep sizes. Each sheep is knit in three main pieces, plus two ears. Two mirror-image sides are joined and a gusset adds width.
