Again used remnants. I did not have enough for long sleeves, so this needs a long sleeved T underneath.

I saw a picture of the sheep somewhere on the internet and put that on.
In Dutch the same word ('mazen') is used for grafting and for stitching over knitting, it's the same technique. I have no idea what it's called in English. Can you enlighten me?

This sweater is so cute. Lucky someone to have this adorable sweater to usher in spring. And new baby sheep. ;)

Beautiful sweater! Love the sheep and the thought of you seeing them "somewhere on the web" and stitching them on from memory is amazing! You're so talented!

A great use of some oddments!
I would call the method of invisibly joining a shoulder seam "grafting". Stitching over knitting to look as if it was knitted in is called "Swiss Darning". I have no idea why!
