Sheep II Cowl
Who doesn’t love sheep? Especially knitters, we are practically best friends. Pick some fun colours and knit your own happy sheep all in a row. And now you can share the sheep love on a cowl to match your hat (separate pattern) or simply on it’s own.
Another simple to knit but complex looking design. No one needs to know this other than you though, especially if you knit this as a gift.
The stitches are simple because they use the mosaic stitch method of colourwork. You will be working with only one colour at a time in each round. Easy peasy even if you are new to this type of knitting.This pattern is written out in full row-by-row and does not use charts.
