An easy and quick design to knit. The pattern includes colour coded sizes for ages from 2 to 10 years and a large full-page coloured intarsia charts for the sheep.

You could omit knitting the Christmas hats on the sheep and you would then have an all-year round sheep sweater and hat set, but the Sheep in their Christmas hats look very cute and festive!
