Lamb from Scratch - Pattern Available!

Hi Knitters,
I am so happy to share my new pattern for this adorable little lamb named, Lamb from Scratch. I knit the lamb up in my own handspun but I recommend several easily accessible commercial yarns that could be successfully used instead. This makes the pattern available to everyone regardless of whether or not you spin your own yarn.

Here is some information you might like to know:
Finished measurements: 5-inches tall, 3½-inches wide
Yarn: I used my own handspun in the sample, which is a bulky weight yarn and the sample used a very small amount, under 100 yards.
Commercial yarn recommendations:
Rowan Purelife Renew – 1 skein
Tahki Donegal Tweed – 1 skein
Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds Chunky Undyed – 1 skein
Note: Any chunky/bulky weight yarn will work well.
Needles: US size 7 double-point needles, set of 4 or size to obtain gauge (exact gauge is not important but close is best)
Gauge: 4 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch (exact gauge is not important but close is best)
Yarn needle
Stitch markers
Ruler or tape measure
Poly-pellets (optional AND considered a choking hazard for young children and babies)
Black embroidery floss

You can order the pattern from either place, it doesn't make a difference to me. Some like to have the pattern in their Ravelry library for storage and an immediate download. If you order from my personal shop, please be patient. I personally send out all of the patterns via email with an attached pdf file which I really like doing. Sometimes (although rarely) I am not at my computer, I may be with my family, sleeping, etc. I usually get the patterns out very quickly, if not immediately. I try my best to be very prompt.

Thanks if you choose to order! I'll be back soon with some very fun craft projects, weekend activities and more knitting. I have a few placemats to finish up this week so I am hoping to get the tutorial for the quilted placemats up very soon.
best, susie
