When hip local yarn shop StashLocal asked me and Moipouf to dream up a window display made entirely of yarn, we pictured a fiber wonderland where blackface sheep frolicked over every hill. In order to fill the pasture with flocks of sheep, we needed an expedient yet adorable design that didn’t involve sewing many parts together. Since no such pattern existed, we designed it. Voilà! An amigurumi style design with no assembly or sewing required.

In this project you’ll practice two clever crochet techniques that add versatility to your repertoire. Invisible color changes and skipped stitches introduce body parts instead of sewing separate pieces together. With these simple tricks, you’ll discover a whole new world of possibilities in your crochet projects.

Size: 1.5 inches tall, but you can use any weight yarn or hold yarn double for a bigger item.

Skill level: Intermediate

Required skills: It’s about one step up from a beginner’s pattern, using single crochet, increase, decrease, and half double crochet stitches.

Materials: Any yarn weight and the appropriate hook will work for this project. You’ll also need stuffing, stitch markers, and a tapestry needle.
