SHEEP CUSHION KNITTING PATTERNS
Baaa! Knit up a cute and cuddly sheep cushion for your sofa. The sheep’s fleecy body is knitted in a boucle yarn to make it extra cuddly (I used Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake Chunky yarn for my sheep).
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the sheep and photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.
YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 4.5mm knitting needles (US 7) and a pair of 5.5mm knitting needles (US 9)
- Aran yarn (worsted weight) in brown for the head and feet
- Chunky boucle yarn in beige for the body
- Buttons and felt fabric for eyes
- Toy filling
