In celebration of the DVD release of Shaun the Sheep The Movie (which is out now), Rowan has teamed up with their favourite woolly character (and ours) to design an exclusive 25 square Picnic Blanket.

The b-ewe-tiful blanket is available as a free download here and features loveable characters from the movie such as Bitzer, Timmy, Shirley, and of course, Shaun. There are some baa-rilliant Shaun the Sheep The Movie and Rowan goodies to be won, just take a picture of you knitting your Shaun the Sheep Picnic Blanket and post them to the Rowan Yarns Facebook page before the closing date of August 1st 2015 to be in with a chance of winning! If ewe're as mad about Shaun the Sheep as we are and want to make your Blanket a little more unique, don't forget you can still download our free Shaun the Sheep face pattern here to use as a square in the blanket (just be sure to check your measurements first).
