Farmer Drabble and Sheep
FARMER DRABBLE AND SHEEP TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
Farmer Drabble is looking after his sheep called Skip. You can knit up your own shepherd and sheep with this pattern.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the farmer and sheep, 18 photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 7 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: The crook (the shepherd’s staff) is i-cord knitted on two double pointed needles, and all the other pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colours at the ends of a row (knit stripes), knit i-cord and sew seams. The sheep pattern incorporates knitted bobbles for feet, and instructions on how to knit a bobble are included in the pattern.
