I’m using Kinoknit’s idea to have half of the sheep facing one direction and half facing the other, BUT, this size has an uneven number, soooooo…
- … on the lower flock, the center sheep is the 7 stitch, forward facing sheep from the Baa-ble hat chart with 2 sts in MC on either side.
- You’ll notice that the Baable sheep is two rows taller than the Flock. Knit the white sts in MC for rows 7,8,9 of the Baable chart, then go in and duplicate stitch them in (threading the beads as you go) after the knitting is done. But RIGHT after you finish the plain rows above, because heaven knows, you’re not going to remember what to do after a few weeks of ignoring this project and WOW is it satisfying. YES, I KNOW, they’re not centered like the rest of the beads.
- … on the upper flock, there are Meg Warren sheep dogs facing in on the fronts (for symmetry), because Genevieve thinks it’s funny that herding dogs nip. The sheep dogs are taller than the sheep, and have a different color pattern. I fixed all of this by doing duplicate stitch after the knitting was done.
