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.

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