Sleepy Sheep Socks - Knitting Pattern PDF
This wooly knit sock pattern is a tribute to our fiber friend, the sheep! The socks are worked from the toe up so that the happy, sleepy sheep face can be stitched on with very little fuss. The instep and leg have a textured appearance like a wooly fleece while the sole is smoother for comfort. The socks have a German Short Row heel.
