This Christmas present almost drove me crazy! I got the pattern from a book which I shall not mention that I will never, ever, use again because 3 patterns I tried to use from it have mistakes. Hence, the sheep borders on being hunchback and has what looks like a broken leg but, I think, is still adorable and was appreciated by the 6 year old who got it. I used Patons Classic Wool for the black feet, face and ears and Filati Cervina Sorrento for the body, honestly, because this was what I had for black and white yarns in my stash! It was a nice way for me to learn and use the loop stitch.
