Sheep are the source of the beautiful, luxurious wool that many knitters use to knit their creations. They can also be darned cute! The Counting Sheep Bag has an entire herd of sheep covering the sides of the bag. Depending on the yarn you use, it can have white and black sheep, blue and yellow sheep, purple and green sheep, or whatever color combination you can imagine! The bag also comes in handy for insomnia -- counting the sheep should put you right to sleep!

Double knit, the bag is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side. Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique.

The finished size is approximately 4.5” (width) by 12” (length) by 11” (height) (11.4 cm x 30.5 cm x 27.9 cm), not including the handles.
