Friendsheep Knitting Pattern

With a sweet face, spiraling horns, and delightfully rotund body, Friendsheep transforms novelty and textured yarns into sweet, fleecy little friends. If you’ve been looking for a project to make the most of the Fun Fur languishing at the bottom of your stash, this project is just the ticket.

Fair warning, Friendsheep is so darn cute you won’t want to stop after the first one. Knit an entire flock and swap with your sheep-loving friends!

You can fill your sheep with cedar, lavender, or your preferred moth-proofing agent to make a sachet to keep with your stored knits to prevent nibbling insects. Now that’s a good friend!

Skills Needed: Knit on dpns in the round, kfb, ssk, k2tog, backward loop cast on, and i- cord.

Gauge: 12 - 16 sts and roughly 28 rows over 4 inches / 10 cm. A range is provided because it’s nearly impossible to check your gauge in many textured yarns because you can’t see individual stitches.
