This is a crochet pattern and not a finished item.

American Crocheter designs Swiss Sheep to celebrate Chinese New Year. The yarn is from Turkey and the hook was made in Mexico, so this totally works for me.

(Valais Blackface Sheep of Switzerland are adorable!)

-Loop Stitch photo tutorial included- foolproof loop stitches that don’t pull out!
-Optional classic Valais giant horns
-Surprisingly easy construction- any dedicated crocheter can make a Philippe the Sheep!
- Basic color changes and simple sewing required.
-Looks fantastic in many color combos!
