From designer MillaMia’s collection, Milly the Sheep is a cute and cuddly toy that toddlers and even older kids will love to play with. It also makes for a lovely shelf or accent cabinet decoration.

It’s worked in reverse stocking stitch and garter stitch, which gives it a lovely texture. And if you want to make several pieces, you can customize the colors of each one, too.

In addition, a finished product measures approximately 6.5 inches long and about 4.5 inches high. That’s about 16 cm and 12 cm respectively if you prefer to use the metric system.

To make this pattern, you will need the MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino Yarn, which is a gorgeous quality of pure wool yarn. It’s lightweight, soft, and an excellent choice for more advanced colorwork. Plus, it has a springy texture that makes working multiple strands easier.

You will also need a pair of size US 3 knitting needles. That’s 3.25 mm needles if you prefer the metric units.

Moreover, one of the techniques you need to work the pattern is the k2tog, or knitting 2 stitches together. The k2tog is a basic decrease technique that slants to the right.

If you like to learn how to make the k2tog, you can check out our fully illustrated tutorial for this technique that you’ll find helpful. You can find the tutorial here: Basic Right-Slanting Decrease (K2tog).
