This sweater is dedicated to our loving sheeps, the ones who provide us with lovely wool for our sweaters. I also wanted to play with textures, so that babies can touch and experiment with the sweater.

Baby sweater knitting pattern. A texture that will encourage our baby’s touch and create a sweet little sheep.

Would you like to knit this miniature sweater for a special baby?

Animals are always present in children’s clothing. It is possible to play with colors and stitches to create textures that will attract the attention of the little ones of the house.

This time the animal chosen has been a sheep. You can also take a look at the patterns of the teddy bear with the cabled sweater or the free pattern of the Koala with the same structure, by clicking on the following link.

Practice the intarsia technique, for the color change. I guide you with tutorials to make it easy for you.

This pattern includes instructions from size newborn to 12-24 months.

The sweater includes a side opening with two buttons to make it easy to put on and take off.

Dare to practice with color if it’s your first time on a tiny project with this free baby knitting pattern.
