As the last pattern, we are going to make cute sheep potholder.

First, you need to make two flat circles. After adding facial features on to the one flat circle you will see a cute sheep face. The next step is joining these two circles together to get a double thickness. And it will cover the yarn ends on the wrong side of the sheep face.
