This gorgeous little sheep is one I had fun creating last year as a Christmas gift. She involved Fair Isle knitting which is my favourite kind of knitting, and also knitting-in-the-round and Kitchener Stitch.
I chose Alpaca 4ply in Clouds for her head, legs and body and organic merino 4ply in Kundalini and Grapefruit Moon for her "jumper". Both these yarns are non-superwash, therefore classed as a more "rustic" yarn and perfect for Fair Isle knitting. The slight halo that Adagio Mills Alpaca yarn gives produced the desired effect I was after for my sheep, I couldn't be happier with her!
