Learn with Maximum Joy and Minimal Tears

That’s where Sheep & Stitch comes in. Think of it as a friendly, super enthusiastic guide who will hold your hand through the whole knitting journey.
From learning how to knit to completing your first scarf to tackling the all-important sweater, Sheep & Stitch has you covered every step of the way – and will be cheering you on with pom poms (that you can learn how to make here) with every stitch!
