We are excited to offer our next kit pre-order for the popular Sheep! pattern which was released in May 2016. Susan re-knit the sheep in our Home Fingering Weight instead of the original sport weight yarn. The only thing that changed is the needle size which is a recommended US size 2 for the kit.
Included in the kit is enough yarn to make all three sheep, the embroidery floss for the face and a tin of 20 colorful pear-shaped stitch markers.
If you already have the pattern be sure to select the kit option that does not include a copy. If you purchase a pattern with your kit, a Ravelry download code will be sent to you.
The kits will be mailed out in a week or so. You will receive an email when it has been shipped.
These adorable, distinctive sheep are worked completely seamlessly from the bottom-up on double-pointed needles (the pattern can be easily adapted for Magic Loop).

For the Loopy Sheep! I’ve used the same loop stitch as Joanna Johnson did in her Timber Mittens (check out this fun pattern)! Joanna did a tutorial video on this stitch here:
