Mini Animal Heads

Mini Sheep Head Knitting Kit

Give a warm, woolly welcome to the newest member of the Sincerely Louise family, Eunice the Sheep. My mini sheep is the cutest addition to any room, and the perfect spring knitting project. You can choose between a cream or black mini sheep head, or if you can't choose, make a whole flock of them.

Eunice is knitted using bobble stitch, which gives her fleece a lovely texture. If you haven't knitted a bobble before don't worry, as the pattern includes a photo tutorial. Once you can make one bobble you'll be able to make lots, and once you can make lots you'll be able to knit your own sheep! 

The kit includes everything you'll need to make Eunice, including the pattern, aran weight yarn, trophy backing board and stuffing. The yarn used in this kit is Scheepjes Stone Washed XL, which is a cotton, acrylic blend. This yarn has white flecks running through it and gives the knit a great structure.
