Nancy saw this Sheep Baby Blanket on Pinterest and insisted that I make it. It is officially the cutest baby blanket I have ever knitted. Spoiler Alert: if you know me and are having a baby this is the blanket that I am going to knit for you!
How to Make a Sheep Baby Blanket
You will need:
- Precious Knit Blankies for Baby pattern book
- Yarn Bobbins
- Size 8 (5mm) Circular Knitting Needle
- Black Embroidery Thread
- Vanna’s Choice Yarn – Pink
- Bernat Pipsqueak Fuzzy Yarn – White
I bought this pink and white yarn at Michaels. You will also need six yarn holders for knitting the white sheep and a Size 8 (5mm circular needle.)
The blanket is a basic Knit and Purl pattern but the little sheep are made using Intarsia knitting which I had never done before so the project did turn out to be a tad challenging.
Here is a look at the back of the blanket while I was working on the rows with the sheep. Each sheep has it’s own piece of yarn, held on one of these yarn holders.4
Here is the blanket before I added turned the white puffs into sheep! It turned out a little smaller than I most baby blankets I make. It’s definitely more of a bouncy chair/car seat cover-up blanket than something that a baby can lay on.
The sheep are finished by embroidering on legs and a head with black yarn.
