I crocheted filet curtains for a friend a few years ago. Among them was a pair of sheep flock curtains. I think they were each about 30" square. I've been thinking about this for some time and decided I should make some for 3 of my bedroom windows. These windows are all 48" square which would be handy for changing them around.
I dug out the patterns I used for her curtain and in a week crocheted a 55" x 40" curtain for one window. I made mine a bit shorter since my cats love to sun themselves in that window. I tried to photograph it in the window but the light was never cooperative. I took a photo on a dark sheet tho to show you.(You notice how I changed the size once I got started... I crocheted these from side to side - the sheep shapes are markedly different then B's.)
Then I went through my Lacis antique books and looked specifically for sheep charts. I got a bit sidetracked with goats tho. Maybe one curtain should have goats. Then I found a woman sitting with a sheep. It appears the sheep is leashed but with some creative editing I could make it appear that the woman is spindling locks right off the sheep. Wouldn't that be a lot more fun? I could also edit the larger sitting spinning woman to fit and have her sitting on the other side with maybe a laying down goat beside her.
I'm working on the 2nd curtain which is the sheep flock - I pasted different sheep on to a graph paper and drew a different tree for the sides and began crocheting that. I then decided I needed a ram and a herd dog in the frame so I had to rip out what I finished to begin again. The curtain was about a foot short anyway and I knew I wouldn't be happy til I fixed it. That should be done in a week. By that time I'll be ready for the spinners and something different.
All these crocheted with size 10 ecru thread and size 6 crochet hook. I am not adding any sort of embellishments (unusual, I know) just in case I want to use them as runners or some such.
