Sheep toy knitting pattern

Make a cute sheep toy using our knitting pattern from the Woman’s Weekly shop

We’re firm believers that you’re never to old to appreciate just how wonderful cuddly toys really are.

After all, can anything help stir up happy childhood memories quite like them? Not in our opinion.

That’s why we know that you’ll love to have a go at making this adorable four-legged creature using our sheep toy knitting pattern.

With a fluffy white coat and seriously soft brown ears, he’s guaranteed to appeal to people of all ages.

Not only would he look super sweet when propped up on a shelf alongside all of your favourite ornaments, he’d also make a great present for a loved-one.

Before you get started, it’s important to know that hand knitted toys need a great deal of care and attention at the sewing-up stage.

So if you’re feeling a little nervous about the best way to do this, we’ve listed eight handy hints that will help you out in this video with our expert Freddie Patmore.

Feeling inspired by our adorable pattern, Woman’s Weekly reader Beryl Burgess wanted to try and craft a furry little lamb herself.

And Beryl’s reason for getting knitting is just as sweet as her finished make – she kindly made the sheep to raise money for two cat charities that she supports.
