Farmer Drabble

Introducing my Farmer Drabble and Skip the sheep knitting pattern. The farmer is 14 cm tall the sheep is 7 cm tall. Most pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. The crook (the shepherd’s staff) is i-cord knitted on two double pointed needles (DPNs). The sheep pattern incorporates knitted bobbles for feet and instructions are included. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes, and sew seams.
