INSTRUCTIONS

STITCHES USED
Chain (ch), single crochet (sc), slip stitch (sl st)

SPECIAL STITCHES
double-loop-st: Wrap yarn around index finger twice and hold behind work, insert hook into indicated stitch and between the yarn wraps and your finger, remove your finger from wraps and draw wraps through stitch (leaving part of each wrap on other side of fabric to form loops), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook. Note: Loops form on side of fabric that is facing away from you.
double-loop-st2tog: [Wrap yarn around index finger twice, insert hook into next stitch and between the yarn wraps and your finger, remove your finger from the wraps and wraps through stitch (leaving part of each wrap on other side of fabric to form loops)] twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
sc2tog: Single crochet 2 together – Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, (2 loops on hook), insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES
1. Stuff sheep as work progresses, unless otherwise instructed.
2. Pieces are worked in continuous rounds; do not join and do not turn at end of rounds. Place a marker to indicate beginning of round and move marker up as work progresses.
