Cyd the Sheep is the second in the Slumber Party series of fuzzy bedtime friends. The machine washable cover conveniently fits a standard bed pillow. The face is knit in intarsia with duplicate stitch details and the feet, tail and ears are knit separately then sewn into the seams when the pillow is assembled. Large yarn and needles make this a quick knit and a much hugged companion.

Other yarn options are Plymouth Yarn Heaven for the body and feet and Plymouth Yarn Encore Mega for the face, ears and tail.

Approximate yardage:
320 yards of Homespun Thick and quick for body and feet
80 yards Wool-Ease Thick and Quick for face, ears and tail
15 yards Wool-Ease Thick and Quick for eyes and nose.
