These little sheep are ready for anything as they stand at attention around the base of this beanie.

This is a fun way to practice two-handed colorwork and chart-reading. The pattern is not complicated, and the colorwork ends before the crown shaping begins.

Knit in the round from the bottom up, it’s a great way to use up odd balls of leftover yarn.

The pattern uses about 150 yds of the main color and about 35 yds of the contrasting color.
