Giant Sheep Head Knitting Kit

Give a warm, woolly welcome to the newest member of the Sincerely Louise family, Eunice the Sheep. My giant sheep head is the perfect springtime knit and I know ewe'll love her. You can choose between a white or black 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, super chunky yarn, backing board and stuffing. The yarn used in this kit is Scheepjes Peru, which is a super chunky acrylic, alpaca mix, which gives the knit a soft texture.
