Wee Sheep Sweater 

£6.00 (inc VAT)

Chase dogs, throw balls, jump in Mumma’s garden, climb rocks, yell BAA BAA! at sheep…

These perfect sheep the much loved companion of any child.

With the light and almost silky Jamieson & Smith Shetland Heritage Naturals, we have made it a little more rugged by holding it double (please double yardage).

For a more luxury sweater, we’ve picked up some John Arbon Textiles - Knit by Numbers (merino) which is fully and soft, perfect for sensitive skin or little ones.

The slightly smaller gauge of the pattern is very forgiving for beginners of stranded knitting, but pick colours with a good deal of contrast for the best result.

Pick a unisex colour combo and you’ll be sure to have a sweater that ends up ragged with years of wear from many different children as it becomes an adorable favorite.
