Pattern Description:

Includes one PDF file on 13 pages with all the instructions needed to make your own cuddly sheep.

Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

In this tutorial I will explain the bobble stitch, starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails. Pattern includes unlimited support from me via email.

Gauge:

You can use the same pattern to make smaller or larger toys by using finer or bulkier yarns. Make sure to pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 32 cm (10 1/2") tall, with DK weight alpaca wool and a 2,50 mm crochet hook.

Materials:

  • Yarn. I used DK weight 100% alpaca wool, 100 m = 50 g (109 yds = 50 g) / 8 ply / 11 wpi. You will need about 90 g of yarn for the fleece and about 40 g for the limbs and ears.
  • 2,25 - 2,75 mm crochet hook (US size 1/B - 2/C) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
  • 12 mm (1/2") safety toy eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Cotton embroidery floss.
  • Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.

Suggested yarn:

260 meters of DK weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Katia "Alpaca Andes"
