You know what you need? A little pocket sheep. Yup. What does a knitter really need other than their yarn, needles, and a little knitted sheep to tuck in their pocket Right? We knew you would agree.You totally need a fibery friend to live in your knitting bag (or on your desk), don't you? For sure. This charming little friend is your perfect pocket companion! It is time for some pocket sheep love.
These friendly, woolly sheep are perfect to give as gifts, or even to make up as party favors (if you can manage to part with the adorableness once you are finished!). Our Pocket Sheep kit comes packaged in an adorable happy yellow cupcake box, complete with a handle on top, and would make a lovely gift for your knitting friend, too. Our delightful little sheep kit comes complete with the yarn to make one white sheep and one dark gray sheep. Plus this is a quick and fun knit and you will find yourself whipping them out faster than you can shear a sheep! You can also use the pattern to make multiple sizes of sheep, depending on what weight yarn you use as illustrated in the last photo. We know, you didn't think this kit could get any better, but it totally did once you found out you could knit all kinds of sizes of sheep. That "Buy Now" button is right there up to your right...

All you will need to complete your woolly friend is a US Size 1 (2.25 mm) circular needle, a tapestry needle, removable stitch markers, and scissors!
