Franklin Habit Dolores Kit

Meet Dolores Van Hoofen, the world’s most ill-bred purebred sheep and friend to Franklin Habit. Once you’ve made your own Dolores, be sure to check back for kits to expand her wardrobe. After all, a girl has to be able to accessorize.

Dolores Kit from Franklin Habit includes all the yarn you need to knit your very own woolly sidekick—3 balls of Valley Yarns Valley Superwash in Natural and 1 ball in Black, enough to knit Dolores and her pillbox hat and striped shawl—plus the PDF pattern download, a small pair of sunglasses, and more! You just need to provide the needles and stuffing. This stuffed sheep is knit in the round from the top-down, and the only seaming is to attach her arms, legs, snout, and ears to her body.

Please note that the sunglasses are available in assorted colors; we will choose for you.
