Deb is a fantastic artist, and her drawings are creative and expressive. When I saw this drawing of a Leicestershire sheep, I immediately knew it would make a terrific intarsia chart. The tendrils are fun to knit, and I think that the bag captures the spirit of the sheep. The body of the bag is worked in the round, and the flap is worked flat, using the intarsia technique to create the sheep motif.
