You know what you need? A little pocket sheep. Yup. What does a knitter really need other than their yarn, needles, and a little knitted sheep to tuck in their pocket Right? We knew you would agree.You totally need a fibery friend to live in your knitting bag (or on your desk), don’t you? For sure. This charming little friend is your perfect pocket companion! It is time for some pocket sheep love.

These friendly, woolly sheep are perfect to give as gifts, or even to make up as party favors (if you can manage to part with the adorableness once you are finished!). Our delightful little sheep pattern is perfect to knit in white, or black, or dark gray, or any color of rainbow scraps you might have laying around! Plus this is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself whipping them out faster than you can shear a sheep! You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of sheep, depending on what weight yarn you use as illustrated in the photos. We know, you didn’t think this kit could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of sheep. That “Buy Now” button is right there up to your right…

Pattern Format: Instant download Adobe .pdf file

35-60 yards of white or dark gray yarn for body and tail
25-50 yards of black yarn for legs, head, and ears
The heavier the yarn weight, the more yardage needed.

This pattern is written round by round so that you can use any weight yarn you want to create all sorts of sizes of woolly friends. Try sock yarn for pocket size sheep, or bulky yarn perfect for a huggable friend.

Want this to be a prepackaged, ready-to-go project? We can make that happen! As shown in the last photo, we also sell this pattern as a kit in our shop.

Gauge: You pick! Simply knit with your choice of yarn on needles 2-3 sizes smaller than called for to get a tight knit fabric your stuffing won’t show through.

Needles: You pick! A 40” or longer circular needle (for Magic Loop Method) in a size right for your yarn. See the pattern for more info.

Notions: Scissors, tapestry needle, beginning of the round stitch marker (removable or closed) and an optional row counter. 24 removable stitch markers, stuffing, and a set of safety eyes and a triangle safety nose (or other eye and nose choices such as buttons or scrap yarn for embroidery).

Finished size: Your finished size will depend on what weight yarn you use. If you are knitting this pattern in sock weight yarn like the smallest samples shown, your finished friend will come out about 3.5” tall and 2.5” long with 6mm safety eyes. The worsted weight sample measures approximately 5” tall and 3.5” long and uses 9mm safety eyes. Increasing the weight of your yarn, or even holding yarn double and working the pattern on larger needles will create larger finished friends.
