Welcome to the Flock

This little sheep sweater really began with the yarn. I could think of nothing more special to do with Sincere Sheep’s naturally dyed superwash than to make a sweater to welcome a new little person into the world with. And if you’re going to make a little sweater, you might as well make a hat to match.

And yes, thanks for asking: a grown up version is in the works. I’m just waiting on the yarn. Knitters looking for an adult sized Sheep Fix might look at my Wolves will be Wolves Hat.

The sweater’s finished measurements are for a 17 (18, 19, 20.5, 22)” chest.

The hat’s finished circumference is 14.5 (16.25, 18.25)”.

To knit both the sweater and the hat, you’ll need 2 skeins of your main color. In this case, I chose Sincere Sheep’s color Virid.
