What a delightful way to help baby fall asleep by Counting Sheep! This warm and cozy blanket has a flock of sheep walking around the parameter of the blanket, led on each side by a fluffy bobble stitch sheep, followed by the more ordinary seed stitch sheep. The designs are interchangeable, so you have the flexibility of changing the order and type of sheep on your blanket to suit your taste. Need a blanket for a little boy? Change the border color to a more masculine tone, switch out the eyelet border for a garter or seed stitch border and you are set to go!

Also included are instructions for the bobble stitch and picot stitches used for the ears and tails.

I’m a mid-western farm girl transplanted to the West Coast. I learned to knit in my 8th grade home-ec class. My first major project as a beginner was making a lacy knit stole for my Grandmother. After a long hot summer of knitting, it won first prize at the county 4-H fair and a second place at the Indiana State Fair. I’ve continued to knit off and on for over 40+ years. I prefer simpler projects like blankets and scarves because I’ve don’t like sewing pieces together. Semi-retirement has given me the time to explore new ways to be creative with my knitting. Hope you like what you see. Happy Knitting.
