Sheep! ~ a new pattern and discount ~


Hi, Knitters,
I have a new pattern release for you today and it is called Sheep! I have placed the pattern for Sheep! on a special release discount for $3.50, no code is necessary. The discount it good from today, May 26 through June 2, 2016. After June 2, 2016 the set pattern price will be $5.00 per pattern.


Here is a little about the construction of the Sheep! toy:

The sheep, no matter which stitch pattern, is started with a garter stitch base worked back and forth. The body is picked up around the edges of the base and the rest of the body, neck and head is worked in one piece. There is some Kitchener stitch involved as well.

The ears and feet are picked up and knit onto the head and body. It is fast and fun and completely seamless. 

There are three choices in the pattern, a wrap stitch (the white sheep), the loopy stitch (the tan sheep) and the colorwork sheep. All three patterns are included. The colorwork sheep instructions include a simple chart.


Here is some pattern information you might like to know for Sheep!:

Finished measurements:  Body length 4-inches, height 3.5-inches

Colors used:

Textured sheep: Egret
Colorwork sheep: Iceland (base, legs, head and ears), Pomegranate (Main Color) and Petal (Contrast Color)

Needles: US size 3 (3.25 mm) double-pointed needles, set of 4, or size to obtain gauge

By adding simple two color stranded colorwork to the body the sheep becomes even better! 


 The wrap stitch Sheep! is simple and elegant. The stitch pattern is fun to do and adds the perfect touch.


 This loop stitch is fun and it gives the perfect wooly coat for the sheep.


I am excited to be able to release the pattern for Sheep! I hope you enjoy it. The Sheep! pattern makes the perfect gift for any baby, child, sheep lover, knitter, wool lover.... you name it.

These little sheep are wonderful! Love them! What a charming, creative pattern! My favourite one is the one with the colour pattern on it - but it's impossible not to love the others, too!

I love these and plan to fill them with real wool - no poly for these cuties! If you are looking for affordable, local wool for stuffing, check out CeCe's Wool on Etsy.
