The Bobble Sheep Pillow is the coolest accent pillow you could ever have in your apartment. It's a free knit pillow pattern that looks exactly like a puffy sheep! This intermediate knitting pattern uses the bobble stitch in order to get that wool-like texture and jumbo weight yarn to ensure the end product is super soft and huggable. Not a fan of jumbo weight yarn? No worries, there is also a link to a smaller pattern of this sheep pillow that would make a respectable armchair decoration.

This is not a free pattern. You need to buy a kit from to get the pattern with the yarn.

Hi nancerbug, the pattern actually is free. If you click on the link that reads "Bobble Sheep Pillow in Super Soft Merino pattern" under "Pattern" in the purl soho link we provide, you'll be taken to the original pattern, which you should follow with the alterations specified to knit this pillow. We hope this helps! Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

That link does not work for me. How can I get a copy of the pattern.

Hi kbates, we recommend clearing your history and cache before trying to access the pattern again, and making sure that the browser you are using is up-to-date, as we have no problems with that link on our end. If you still can't access the pattern, we recommend contacting Purl Soho to ask for a copy. Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

It is adorable, but the cost of this project is way out of line for the average knitters budget.

This is SO cute. It almost doubles as a knitted toy for a child it's just that cute.
