Sheepy Washcloth and Soap Sack by Sarah Wilson
Unique Sheep Pima Petite in Peace colorway
Made for 7 Deadly Spins Yarn Club
I decided to it as a present for my mother-in-law. She likes sheep a lot so I figure she would enjoy it.
I increased the needle size as I tend to knit tightly. Though I think that was a mistake. There are some gaps around the base of the legs where I stitch from knit to purl. Washing it did smooth it out a bit, but it would have been better in a smaller needle size.
Definitely a fast knit and cute for anyone who likes sheep.
I knit this in the round rather than having to seam it. I am working in magic loop and finding it is pretty quick.
I decided to knit the stitch pattern as it was written so I did the K1, P1 for a row, then the K across for the next row. Then I turned it inside out to get the bumps on the outside. I knit faster & tighter than I purl. So it is quicker that way.
Very simple pattern though I think it will be nice. I am think my mother-in-law liked it.
The yarn is really nice. I machine washed and dried it. It still feels nice and soft. Definitely a delight.
I am leaning towards knitting up some washcloths & soap sacks as Xmas pressie. They are quick and can easily be customized to the person which is nice.
