|Sam the Ram is a stuffed
sheep about 13 1/2 inches long by 13 inches tall with horns. He has
Aran patterned "fleece" in natural color with dark legs and face.
Designer Rita O'Connell says the skill level is advanced to adventurous
intermediate knitter. The pattern is a 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" booklet,
23 pages including the stitch charts, hand drawn graphics showing knitting
directions and text with row by row instructions. See his mate, Sue below.
| The original Sam was knit with 2 sets of size 4 double point
needles, a 16" or 24" circular sz 4 can be used for part of the
body of the sheep, but 6-7 DP needles are needed for the first few rows
because of sharp angles of the head. When finished, he is stuffed with 16
ounces of roving or fiberfill which is not included in the kit.
He can also be knit with worsted weight yarn and size 7 needles. He would stand about 15 inches tall by 17 inches long
Sport Kit includes pattern booklet and Marr Haven 3 oz. Natural sport wt. yarn and 1 oz. Medium Grey sport wt. $19.95.
Stuffing of roving or fiberfill is not included, 16 oz. is suggested for Sam. You can order roving here.
Knit then Felt a Flock. You can have sheep; no baa-ing
nor hay to feed. Knit with worsted weight yarn, approximate gauge of 13-14
st = 1 inch, size 10-10 1/2 needle. Felt in a washing machine, dry and
stuff (felting instructions are in pattern)..
The amount of felting will determine the finished size of the sheep. Marr Haven wool yarn takes longer to felt than commercial wool yarns because it is 100% fine grade wool.
