Sheldon Sheep and Friends – Designed by Amy Gunderson – Sheldon the Sheep’s legs, arms, and head are knit, while his body and cap are crocheted. Each is made in a shade of Universal Yarn Deluxe Chunky Naturals yarn. It’s particularly fitting, because those shades are completely undyed.  They come from different flocks, so each shade of yarn is the color of the sheep that it came from.  In this case, the wool is literally going from one sheep to another!

The sheep’s official names are Sheldon, Sheila, Sherry, Shirley, and Woolma – but you can name them whatever you like!
