Newborn hat according to pattern. 16” circulars are too big. DPNs are bad news with stranded colorwork. Purl sheep don’t let you wrap floats so my floats were all to tight. Still pretty tight with knit sheep and wrapped floats, so I guess I need to work on my tension.

Toddler hat according to some Raveler’s project notes. I cast on 76 and put 6 sts btn ea sheep, but that was too many. Next time work backwards from the dec rows, in multiples of 8. Like “k7, dec” = 9, 8 times = 72.

Duplicate stitching all those sheep parts is a royal pain in the ass. No me gusta.
