This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms. With this easy pattern, you can make a cute and curly sheep (ram). Don’t let the complicated look of Staruman fool you because he is just as easy to make as most of my patterns. Crocheting the body and horns only takes a bit more time.

Size of finished animal
Sitting made with worsted weight yarn: 5.5 inch / 14 cm.

The crochet pattern contains
An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right.

3 colours of worsted weight yarn: dark brown (1/5 of a 100 yard skein), beige (1/3) and murky brown (1/8). You will also need fibrefill and pellets for extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads). I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result for both the eye patches and loop stitches.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
