Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Working in The Round
  • Sewing to Attach the Legs to the Body

Pattern Description:

Shannon Sheep is a texture-rich toy for all ages and you can make your own using this pattern. Did you know: If you see a sheep on its back, lend a hand! A sheep can't get up from that position.

Shannon is made in 5 pieces: head/body, 4 legs. As with most amigurumi, this piece is worked in a continuous spiral. Do not join rounds. Using a stitch marker can help keep track of rounds. A stitch marker, such as a piece of contrasting yarn placed at either the beginning or the end of the round can help keep track of round in the spiral.

Stuff as you go (polyester filling, cotton, yarn scraps, etc.). Finish the piece by sewing together the parts.
