Last week we posted a little teaser pic of our new amigurumi sheep stuffed toy. Delighted with the positive responses and anticipation received from our post on Instagram and Facebook, we decided to release it sooner! We love how they turned out and couldn't wait to share this special product release. Please meet Fluufie, our super fluffy and soft amigurumi sheep!
Fluufie is extra special because now you can make your own by following our first ever FREE PATTERN! We have such high respect for our fellow crafters who provide patterns. These definitely take a lot of hard work and time to write, but we really wanted to show our appreciation to all of our fans who have been requesting and anticipating a momomints amigurumi pattern. Please see below for the complete Fluufie the sheep pattern:
Fluufie the Sheep - An amigurumi pattern for one cozy fluffy sheep
"Hi I’m Fluufie! I like to graze on fresh meadow grass and enjoy the cool springtime breeze. Continue reading to find out how to make me."
1 skein of eyelash yarn in cream colour (BERNAT Pipsqueak, Bulky Weight 5)
1 skein of worsted acrylic yarn in soft taupe colour (Loops & Threads, Medium Weight 4)
1 skein of worsted acrylic yarn in mint colour (optional)
H size crochet hook F size crochet hook
Polyester fiber fill stuffing
A pair of safety eyes
Ink pad in the colour Pink (optional)
1 jingle bell (optional)
sc = single crochet st = stitch rnd = entire round dec = decrease stitch inc = increase stitch (# st) = # number of stitches in the row
In this pattern we use a crocheting technique called the Magic Circle as well as some basic crochet stitches. Please familiarize yourself with these techniques before continuing. You will also need to already know how to close off amigurumi pieces. There are many crocheting tutorials available on the web and on YouTube that are readily available. We have listed a few helpful reference links at the end of this pattern.

Once you have the parts of your sheep all made, it’s time to start assembling. Attach the safety eyes to the face and using the yarn needle, sew the face onto the long end of the body where you closed it up. Then attach the legs to the bottom and sew the ears above the face. Optional: Attach the jingle bell to the collar and tie it around the sheep. Then use some pink ink for the blushing cheeks. You now have completed Fluufie the Sheep!
Tips & Tricks
- Use a slightly bigger crochet hook when working with the fluffy yarn because it’ll be easier to see and feel where to place your stitches.
- Try practicing with worsted acrylic yarn first to get a feel for the pattern before using the fluffy yarn.
- The body of the sheep will expand a lot when stuffing.
- Try using different colours and yarn weights to achieve different looks.
