Susan B Anderson has designed a knit Loopy and now you can knit up your favorite sheep in socks! Loopy is knit almost completely seamlessly. The body and head are knit separately in the round and then whip stitched together. There is a simple popcorn stitch section on both the body and the back of the head. The ears and limbs are picked up and knit directly onto the toy. The signature red socks are knit in with one of the socks worked in stripes. The face and sock details are embroidered after the knitting is complete.

Finished measurement: 7 3/4 inches (19.5 cm) tall when sitting

Note: The entire project is knit in 2 strands of fingering weight yarn held together.
