A round and cuddly sheep, about 4.5” tall and 6” from tail to nose. She stands on her four legs through the power of yarn engineering, there are no wires or inserts and she’s knitted entirely flat on straight needles. The Sheep pattern is available individually or as part of the eBook Around the Barnyard which also features the patterns for a pig, duck, cow, mother hen and baby chick.

I often knit this sheep when a friend has a new baby.
