The Design

"Knit a flock of fleecy friends!"

Every knitter dreams of having their own sheep! Well, these handknit friends, created by Freshy Millsap, are a wee bit easier to care for than a real herd. Choose stockinette or garter stitch for fleecy variety—and knit your own flock!

We knit the larger version of our Woolly Wee Sheep in Jamieson’s Double Knitting, a DK-weight yarn spun from 100% Shetland wool. Shorn from a diminutive breed of sheep that’s adapted to the rugged Shetland Isles in the North Sea, it’s springy, lofty, and lightweight—perfect for your very own handknit herd!

Three skeins of Double Knitting will make a wee flock of five to six larger sheep. Pick up two skeins of Appleton Crewel Wool—one red and one green—for the bell tie, darning needle, threader and a pack of six wee, jingling bells for a fun finish!
