To go to sleep, count your blessings and some sheep !

This PDF Crochet Pattern will guide you to crochet a sheep tissue holder as shown in pictures, made using soft acrylic yarn (DK / 8 ply) and crochet hook J (6 mm).
The sheep works up quickly by crocheting it with 2 strands of yarn, held together. This will give a nice, thick and soft fabric to cover the package of tissues and for countless hours of cuddling !

Stylecraft Special DK/8 ply was used to create the tissue holder in the pictures. Wool or cotton yarn of the same weight/thickness will be suitable too for this pattern. There will be an opening at the bottom to insert the package of tissues and a button closure.
Finished size will be approx. (l x h x w) 7.9” x 7.9” x 5.9” (20 x 20 x 15 cm)

Most parts of this sheep will be worked in continuous rounds. The bottom/flap will be worked in rows.
