Sheep „Pommel”
design by Kerstin Jütte

Materials:
- Tapestry needle
- Grey sheepwool
- Dark grey yarn for eyes, nose and feet
- Fleece or extra yarn scraps for stuffing
- A ribbon to make a bow tie
- 1 set US 1/2mm double-point needles



I-cord:
Cast on stitches using double pointed needles. Knit the first row but don't turn your piece. Slip the stitches back to the beginning of the needle and knit the row again. Continue in this manner until you have a short length of knitting, pull down on the loose tail and the space between the stitches will close.

Pattern notes:
Make sure your knitted fabric is nice and firm because it will be stuffed later.
