Unilateral Sheep

Almost is the sheep scarf. It is missing one sheep. The pattern is written so that at the end of the first ball of yarn the stitches are held while the pattern is repeated for the second half. When the second half is done, the halves are grafted together to make the scarf with 2 sheep ends. When I reached the end of ball 1, I decided I was happy to keep going with the pattern and see how it would look with one sheep. I think it looks rather sophisticated, especially with how the border pattern transitioned from the main pattern.
This is an extreme example of how $4 worth of yarn can become something really cool.

It looks wonderful! I love the single-sheep variation.
Would it be possible to post links to any of the patterns that are posted/available for purchase online? Thanks!
