These baby lambs are a little cranky because it’s nap & apple time, but they still give good hand hugs!
Sizes: S (M) (L) (XL)
Finished measurements flat: 3” (3.25”) (3.5”) (3.75”) wide, by 4.75” (5”) (5.25”) (5.5”) long.
When deciding on size, place hand flat on top of a tape measure and measure width of hand at the knuckles. Cuffs work best when they are quite snug. Pictured in S.
4-ply or fingering weight wool such as: Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift 25 g - 115 yds - 105 m, 100% wool, No. of balls: 1 ball of each of the following:
MC: Tartan Mix 226
CC1: Earth 227
CC2: Willow 769 (bow)
CC3: Salmon 301 (nose & ears)
(You don’t need much salmon or willow, you might try embroidery floss or un-plying some thicker wool and using that? Also, a DK weight wool white or soft grey for nice thicker
lamb coat. I used Blacker Designs Pure Gotland Wool DK.)
CC4: soft grey natural fleece color (coat & eyes)
A pair of US 2 (2.75 mm) needles 10” long (or needles needed to get gauge)
2 stitch markers, tapestry needle
Tension/gauge: Work 26 sts to measure 4in in St st stitch using US 2 or 2.75mm needles with MC. Use needles necessary to get gauge.
