A fat sheep with floppy legs and a silly face – fun to make and sooo cuddly!
Use novelty "bobble" yarn and 8 ply/DK in any colour you like.
Vary the colour used for head, ears and legs, and give them different faces. Make a flock!
You need almost 100 gms "bobble" yarn plus 50 gms of a matching DK/8 ply yarn (used together) for the main body, plus less than 50 gms of a contrast colour DK/ 8 ply for ears and feet.
As a fan of Mem Fox's book "Where is the green sheep?" I made a sample in green too, with slightly longer legs.
Note: joggle eyes are not safe for children 3 years or younger – use safety eyes or embroider them instead.
