Meet Sherman, a lazy little lamb ready to lounge around or snuggle up.

Sherman can be made in any yarn and hook combination you want. Just be certain that the fabric is firm enough that stuffing does not show through.A fleecy version of Sherman can be made by using a boucle yarn or other textured yarn.

My grey Sherman is made in Vanna’s Choice using three colors and bit of scrap yarn for the nose.

  • MC- Charcoal (85 yards)
  • CC1- Silver Heather (70 yards)
  • CC2- Hot Rose (less than 1 yard)

My fuzzy version is made in Bernat Soft Boucle (MC) and Vanna’s Choice (CC):

  • MC- Natural (90 yards)
  • CC1- Chocolate (70 yards)
  • CC2- Rose (less than 1 yard)
