BAA! What better way to use up some of your wool than with a sheep! Or, even better, a whole herd of them.

Andy the sheep’s body is constructed with fun bobble stitches, giving him some great texture, and his big floppy ears make him super sweet (and a little goofy!).

This little guy measures approximately 5.5 inches long when using worsted weight yarn.

The pattern includes detailed instructions and step-by-step photos, plus you can contact me along the way to ask any questions.

It is an intermediate level pattern that involves starting with a magic ring, chain stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, increasing, decreasing, attaching pieces, and working through back loop only.

Materials you will need:

  • E US (3.5 mm) hook
  • worsted weight yarn, approximately: 53 yds (48 m) for body; 22 yds (20 m) for legs and head.
  • yarn/tapestry needle
  • removable stitch markers
  • two 9 mm plastic safety eyes
  • polyester fiberfill stuffing

Note: If you are making this amigurumi for someone under 3 yrs, I recommend crocheting or embroidering the eyes instead of using the plastic safety eyes.
