Schaapje - The Little Dutch Sheep

(6) Name: 'Knitting : Schaapje - The Little Dutch Sheep

Schaapje - The Little Dutch Sheep

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and Purl

Pattern Description:

Schaapje wants to come live with you! Just look at the cute way her little ears perk up when you're near! She loves you! And, we can tell - you love her too!

Now you can knit Schaapje, the loveliest sheep of them all, for yourself! She is very easy to knit, and she is so sweet and gentle. She won't even complain when you stuff her.

And won't she be the most adorable little friend you have ever knitted? We think so too. Plus, she is very low maintenance. No shearing required. And, she promises not to eat all of your grass either (unless you want her too, of course)! What more could you want?


Your yarn will determine the size of your sheep. We used bulky yarn, however you can use any kind of yarn. The size of your needle should be smaller than recommended for your chosen yarn so that your knitting will be nice and tight so that your stuffing will not poke through later.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • About 7" high when she's sitting down! Just the right size for a little sheep.


  • MC: (Main color) 100 yards of Bulky Weight Yarn. Color: Cream or White. CC: (Contrasting color) 40 yards of Bulky Weight Yarn. Color: Brown or Black.

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle for finishing, stuffing (we used sheepie-colored roving).

Suggested yarn:

100 yards of Bulky weight


Sheepie Colored
