[Đan móc len sợi] – Chart Sheldon the Sheep

59

After Yarndale, my head was full of all things wooly, and what better way to commemorate the first festival than with my own tribute – Sheldon the Sheep!  This is my very first attempt at designing my own amigurumi, so please let me know if you spot any mistakes, or if anything is unclear.  

I would love to hear what you think of Sheldon – good or bad – so please leave me a comment at the bottom of the page.
