This weekend I wasn’t sure what to crochet. Then I remembered an Amigurumi sheep I’d seen in issue 13 of simply crochet.
￼ I tweaked the pattern slightly to make the arms a little shorter. Also, I added a little more shaping to the ears.I think it’s coming together quite nicely. ￼
The pattern was nice and straight forward. ￼ The tail didn’t say it was stuffed but I added a little. It gives the sheep a little more stability when sat. ￼
Now, I think he looks pretty good as he is but the pattern explains how to add a fleece. It involves surface crochet and chains; creating loops all over the cream body parts.
Hopefully in the next couple of days I’ll be able to show a fleecier sheep. I’m going to try using sirdar’s snowflake yarn.
