A Project in Sheep’s Clothing is a versatile project bag and a great project to learn the arts of wet felting and needle felting. Make your bag unique by incorporating stripes or other ornamentation, or follow our instructions to needle felt a sheep on your bag. 

In this KAL you will learn how to:

  • Read your knitting so you can always tell what row you are on
  • Use a lifeline so you never have to rip all your work out again 
  • Do a provisional cast on to knit in the round and have no seams
  • Knit in the round 
  • Knit front and back increase (kfb)
  • Make buttonholes
  • Knit an i-cord
  • Wet felt
  • Needle felt a surface design

Recommended Supplies

  • 550  yards of 100% wool worsted weight yarn in 2 or more colors. We recommend Naturally Nazareth by Kraemer.
  • US 10 or 10.5 (6 or 6.5 mm) circular knitting needles, 32” long or longer (for the provisional cast on and to knit in the round using the magic loop method)
    Note: Since this is a felted project, US 9 or 11 would probably be fine if you don’t have these sizes. If you are adept at knitting in the round and prefer to use other needles, that’s fine too.
  • 1 yard of cotton yarn 
  • Darning needle
  • Scissors

Optional Supplies

  • Grommets for buttonholes
  • Needle felting supplies for sheep:
    • Black & white roving
    • Felting needle
    • Felting pad
    • Small amount of white or ecru crochet thread, embroidery floss, or similar yarn/string
