Pattern Source: (affiliate link) Precious Knit Blankets For Baby (book)
Pattern Name: Sheep Blankie
Hours Spent: Too many!
Materials: 3 skeins Vannas Choice in Dusty Green, 1 skein each of Hometown USA black and white, circular needles for proper gage, yarn needle
Approximate Yarn Cost: less than $15
Skills Required: knit, purl, changing colors, using yarn bobbins (except I didn’t use them), carrying colors on the back
Notes: The trickiest part of this pattern for me was neatly carrying the green yarn behind each Sheep. There was some trial and error but eventually I figured it out. The fabric backing is a soft and cozy knit jersey type material that I hand stitched on after I washed the knit Sheep side. The end result is a cozy and squishy blankie that looks so adorable! I’d love to try this blanket again but use fuzzy yarn for the Sheep.
