Baaa! Knit up a cute and cuddly sheep cushion for your sofa. The sheep’s fleecy body is knitted in a boucle yarn to make it extra cuddly (I used Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake Chunky yarn for my sheep).

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The cushion is approximately 29cm wide (including the tail) and 25cm tall (including the legs).
