Marky had a little lamb

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.

  1. Oh my goodness that is super cute!!!

  2. Sheeptasticness is right! Loving your stitches!
    Would it be weird to make the fleece like a coat, then he could take it off in the summer like he’s been sheared? It’s a shame to cover up all that lovely crochet all year round.
    By the way, I only know one other guy who crochets – now I know two! Surely, there must be more of you out there?

    • Oh a removable coat (with hood) would be fantastic- what a great idea! My mind is already thinking of ways it could be accomplished!

      I bet there are more guys out there… there must be 🙂
