Wee Blackfaced Sheep
This wee sheep was inspired by the Scottish Blackface sheep which can be found all over Britain but particularly in Scotland. They are easily identified by their black (or mostly black) faces and often spectacularly curly horns! Wee Blackface Sheep is knit flat and includes instructions for both sweaters and horns.
