Sheep Amigurumi

After making the crocheted horses and with how adorable they came out – I had to make another animal.

One of the girls at work was pregnant when I made the horses and made an offhand comment about how her baby would love a crocheted horse – so I decided to surprise her.

2015 is the year of the sheep – so I found a pattern for a lamb on Etsy.

I used the same yarn that I did for the horses, since it worked so well – and the lovely fact that it’s both washable and dryable.

The sheep took quite a bit longer to make than the horse. The fleece pattern in the body and head is part of the crochet pattern – called a bobble stitch. Each stitch is actually 5 stitches – so it took about 5 times as long to make. Sigh.

The first one I made (yes, I made two) came out a bit larger than it probably should have been as I wasn’t pulling the bobble stitches tight as I completed them. I learned on the first one and made the second one a little more tight. They both looked fine – it just came out kind of large.

Once I completed the first lamb I brought it to work and surprised my co-worker. She was shocked and totally appreciative. It is totally adorable.

After making that sheep, another co-worker asked if I would make one for her friend who was having a baby– as a commissioned project.

The second sheep is still sitting on her desk at work. She thinks its too cute to give to her friend yet. Lol.
