Baa-Bara’s body is knitted in a fluffy cuddly boucle yarn. You can knit your own Baa-Bara the Sheep with just four knitting stitches: knit, purl, a kfb increase and k2tog decrease.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making Baa-Bara plus photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a kfb increase and k2tog decrease, and sew seams.
