Simon the Sheep was Kerry Lord’s first sheep design, and is well loved here at TOFT. He may look like a dauntingly difficult design with his fluffy fleece, but don’t be put off by it. Simon is a pattern for complete beginners, and his fleece is created using a simple chain loop stitch. If you get stuck, Simon comes with a range of video tutorials online to help complete the pattern. Shown here in TOFT’s 100% British ‘Cream’ DK Yarn.
