Abbreviations

Pattern

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.

Body: <Using the cream colour yarn and H size crochet hook>
Magic circle 5 st
Row 1:  inc1 every stitch (10 st)
Row 2:  sc st, inc1. Repeat for rnd (15 st)
Row 3:  2 sc st, inc1. Repeat for rnd (20 st)
Row 4:  3 sc st, inc1. Repeat for rnd (25 st)
Row 5:  4 sc st, inc1. Repeat for rnd (30 st)
Row 6:  5 sc st, inc1. Repeat for rnd (35 st)
Row 7-10:  sc st rnd (35 st)
Row 11:  5 sc st, dec1. Repeat for rnd (30 st)
Row 12:  4 sc st, dec1. Repeat for rnd (25 st)
Row 13:  3 sc st, dec1. Repeat for rnd  (20 st)
Row 14:  2 sc st, dec1. (15 st)

You will notice the body is slowly closing up. Start filling the body with the polyester fiber fill. Continue repeating Row 14 and stuffing the body as you go until you close it up.

Face: <Using the tan yarn and F size crochet hook>
Foundation chain 5 st
Row 1:  sc st, sc st rnd the foundation chain (11 st)
Row 2:  inc1, 3 sc st, inc1, sc st remaining (13 st)

Row 2:  sc st rnd (6 st)

Ears: <Using the tan yarn and F size crochet hook>
Magic circle 4

Collar (Optional): <Using the mint colour yarn and F size crochet hook>
Foundation chain 45 st

Assembly

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.

Hi Emma!
You can try using a smaller crochet hook and adjusting your gauge. Also, try not to skip stitches in between.


Emma

Hi there! I was having some trouble with this pattern and was wondering if maybe i could have a few tips… When I make the body of the sheep my stitches are very visible through the fluffy yarn which makes it look less fluffy and kind of awkward, you can tell the different rounds apart rather than it looking smooth like a soft ball. How can I solve this?

Hi Ashley!

Thank you for the kind words :) We used the mint colour from Bernat Baby but Caron also makes a similar mint colour yarn too. You can also share your creation with us with the tag #momofluufie. We’d love to see it and we’re working on some new patterns too!


Ashley-^-^

So adorable!!! Thank you for the free pattern, I need to definitely try making this for my mother. She adores sheep. What Mint yarn did you use for this? I came across your website and love all of your other amigurumi. - I’d really love to see some other patterns.
