There can never be too many knitted sheep in my opinion and Baa is a super cute one to add to your collection. Baa is a nearly seamless knit sheep starting at the bottom of the body and working up. For the body you can add in the charted colorwork section or just knit in one color or maybe you may want to add stripes. After the body is completed the head is knit separately and attached to the body. The ears, arms, legs and tiny tail are all picked up and knit on so there is no seaming of tiny parts.
