Pattern rewriting

I’m in the middle of rewriting the pattern for my sheep. Hopefully it will be about half the size of my larger sheep I made a couple of weeks ago. I’m happy with the way it’s turning out though it did take three attempts to get the head the right size. Resizing a pattern certainly isn’t a straightforward process.

I’m making it bit by bit as I write.  My hope is that I’ll spot mistakes and problems as I go. It seems to be working so far.

Crocheting the fleece as I go has been much easier than leaving it until the end.  Adding it to the legs before I joined them together proved much less fiddly; fleecing the body not having arms attached made the whole process much more manageable.

Now I need to make ears, a tail and the all important arms. 🙂
