Say hello to LUPO the lamb!
He doesn't look like but actually Lupo is a wolf! OK - a wolf in sheep's clothing and that's what happened: When Lupo was a puppy, he had a great passion for hand-knitted sheep wool socks. One night he tried to shave a sleeping sheep on the meadow to raise some wool for extra socks. The frightened sheep bite Lupo by accident and since then every full moon he turns into a lamb. As time went by he realized that he so much more preferred to be a sheep than a wolf (because his fur is so much softer than the shaggy wolf fur and he had decided to become a vegetarian anyway). So he took the decision to knit himself a cozy lamb costume from his own full moon sheep wool and life his life as a sheep from now on. Every full moon he takes the chance to shear his fur and to knit his costume in the phase until next full moon. Unfortunately, when he's a weresheep he tended to unravel his knitting, so it took a very long time until Lupo the wolf became Lupo the sheep.
LUPO is approximately 30 cm (12 inches) tall. He is made out of cosy 4 ply sockwool and love. For your little sheep you can use every yarn you prefer - he's getting taller or smaller but he's always really cute!
I wrote this crochet pattern for beginners too and I tried to be very detailed in my descriptions. I also included some charts to explain what to do.
