MATERIALS
Get all the yarn you’ll need to make your own Bobble Sheep Pillow with our Yarn for Bobble Sheep Pillow kit. It includes…

  • Main Yarn: 10 skeins of Purl Soho’s Gentle Giant, 100% merino wool, in either Heirloom White or Graphite Gray
  • Contrast Yarn: 1 skein of Purl Soho’s Flax Down, 43% baby alpaca, 42% merino wool, 15% linen, in Toasted Charcoal

You will also need…

  • US 17, 32-inch circular needles
  • Optional: US 17, 24-inch circular needles (When you start the body of the sheep, you may find it more comfortable to use 24-inch circular needles than the double pointed needles. You will still need the double pointed needles to work the tail though.)
  • Set of US 17 double pointed needles
  • Set of US 10 double pointed needles
  • 1 bag of Fairfield’s Poly-fil Stuffing
  • Scrap yarn (jumbo weight) and crochet hook to match (for provisional cast on)

GAUGE

  • 15 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette stitch with Contrast Yarn, doubled, on smaller needles
