In this latest design from my Wee Blackface Sheep series, inspiration comes from the joy of Spring and the green fields bursting with carefree, bouncing lambs.

Note: For size 6-12 months the designer used one 25 g of MC, with only a few cm to spare. As gauge can vary slightly and/or you may wish to increase the length of the foot. I have therefore recommended the purchase a second ball…just in case!

4 Stitch Markers (all different)
