Ethel the Sheep is sure that there is more to life than foraging for food on her farm, and is hoping for a life of adventure with you. With her cute little ears and textured fleece, she measures approximately 6” (15cm) when sitting, and is just waiting to be your friend. Suitable for an intermediate crocheter, the pattern is made in a spiral of continuous rounds, and uses a variety of stitches and techniques which are clearly explained in the numerous diagrams and photos. Ethel can be poseable or non-poseable – the choice is yours. Ethel can be created using any DK yarn, but why not try our own awarding winning Deramores Studio DK, a beautifully soft acrylic yarn with anti-pilling technology. Sheep come in various shades, and we think Ethel would look fabulous crocheted in Oatmeal and Pearl. Please be aware that Studio DK is a 100g ball, so you will have some yarn left over – which you could use to make Ethel a friend! To complete your sheep you will need: 1 x 50g ball of Beige DK yarn 1 x 50g ball of Cream DK yarn 3.5mm (USE/4) crochet hook 3.25mm (US D/3) crochet hook for the crocheted eyes option Small amount of Black and White yarn for crocheted eyes option 2 x 20mm safety eyes - though please note that Kate handpainted the safety eyes in the illustration for extra appeal - they are usually either a plain black or 'googly' Stuffing Yarn needle Stitch markers Please note: Ethel is crocheted using UK terminology.
