Ever since my dream trip to Ireland where I stayed at a country manor boasting 1,000 acres of woods and fields full of sheep, I have been enamoured with the fluffy beasts. Combine that with my love of knitting and you can see why this pattern is irresistible. It is both practical and lovely. Every time I look at it I think of walking through those magical fields watching the sheep wander and graze.
