This cute Sheep Hat has a ribbed brim and a garter stitch body with a stocking stitch 'face' worked in a contrast colour using the intarsia method. The ears are knit separately in stocking stitch and sewn on upon completion. The hat is knit flat on two needles with a seam at the back. The detailed written pattern includes row by row instructions, a chart for the intarsia sheep face and photos. The pattern is written for Aran (worsted) weight yarn and covers three sizes for babies from 0 - 18 months. This hat would make a lovely set with my Little Sheep Booties for Babies pattern, which uses the same yarn weight!

I have a passion for designing knitwear for babies and children, I then write up the designs as patterns to share with other knitters. Inspiration comes from the countryside near where I live and my own children. However, the knitwear design has to come second to my part time job, the household chores and one of my high maintenance cats, Basil! Keep up to date with my pattern design and Basil's exploits at
