My most popular design! A great beginner project if you want to try knitting toys.

The first photo shows the version of the toy available now. The second photo shows the version available in Fuzzy Knits, which includes the pattern for the hooded cardigan. The third photo shows the original version of the pattern published in 2007.

If you are looking for the hooded cardigan pattern, a very similar version is published in my Clothing Bundle 2.

Pattern was featured on Knit & Crochet Today; pattern details are available by viewing the Episode listing, Show 212: Adorable Toys. A free copy of the .PDF pattern is available by clicking here (Knit Lamb). Note that the pattern instructions appear to be updated slightly for this version.

Yarn requirements:

  • 50g fuzzy or boucle yarn (DK, worsted, or aran weight)
  • 25g contrasting yarn in same weight (CC)


  • 2 small black buttons, beads, or safety eyes
  • Stuffing
  • One 1/2” bell
  • 10” narrow ribbon

From pattern description:
“This sweet and lovable little lamb is the perfect size for a toddler or small child. Of course, softies are good for kids of any age! If you make the toy from acryllic or superwash wool, you can even throw it in the washing machine (on delicate, since softies are sensitive). This pattern is quite flexible, so if the yarn you want to use is a bit heavier and needs larger needles, you will simply get a larger toy. I used Red Heart Symphony for the main color, and Bernat Satin for the contrasting color.”
