Knitters and sheep…. a tale as old as time… like wine and cheese (or wine and anything, for that matter!)… or toast and jam… tea and honey… cookies and milk…

Sheepish Little Sweater is worked as one piece, completely seamless, top-down, with raglan sleeves. The Fair Isle portion is worked with just two colors at a time, making it a great first-time colorwork project. Knit in worsted weight, the smaller sizes can be knit up in a weekend, making it a great baby shower gift.

Be creative with your colors, or choose a subtle monochromatic palette- little ones and sheep look great in just about anything!
