Woolly Sheep

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • use of double points
  • knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

A knit & felt pattern.

These folk-like sheep are quick to knit up and felt. This pattern includes directions for two sheep positions: standing and grazing. The standing sheep has its head in the air and turned slightly to the right; the grazing sheep has its head lowered to the ground.

Knitting with alpaca yarns, or carrying along a fine strand of mohair, create soft, fluffy sheep. And don't forget the infamous black sheep, every flock needs one!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 4-1/2 inches wide by 5-1/2 to 6 inches high after felting


  • 1 skein worsted weight 100% wool yarn, cream
  • size 10.5 double point needles
  • size 10.5 circular needles
  • worsted weight black yarn, for face & legs
