Hello! I want to say this is a lovely sheep!!! And thank you for the pattern!!! I need to ask you where can I get the special yarn from? I looked it online but it isn’t easy to find. Can you point me in the right direction please? Thanks!
Hi, I bought the yarn offline. Here are the links to official distributors:
Yarnart Dolce >>>> http://www.yarnart.info/dolce-p67.html
Alize Cotton Gold >>>> http://alize.gen.tr/index_en.php?is=qualities_detail&id=80
mooie patronen dankjewel
Hi Amber, yes, you can translate but please give a link to my website.
Hi Sarah, what do you mean? What outfit?
It doesn’t appear possible to print this pattern. I’ve tried selecting – nothing. I’ve tried right clicking – nothing. Is there a block on doing this. I’d rather work from a pattern than sit at the computer all the time. Thanks in advance.
Duh! Silly me. Thank you xxx

Hi, is there a substitute yarn we could use instead of yarnart dolce? Thank you!
Hi Emma, try this one http://www.loveknitting.com/sirdar-smudge It’s almost the same.
Any hints to assemble all the parts?
No hints 🙂 Just sew the parts on the appropriate places 🙂
Hi. I adore this pattern. Im abit confused though!! Isn’t the body and top of the head bobble stitch?? I cant see this in the instructions or does this wool look bobbly when you crochet with it as per pattern?? Super excited to start this project.
Hi Narelle, the yarn used for these toys looks bobbly. So, there is no bobble stitches in the pattern.
When do the colors change on the sheep? Are they done in sections?
When you crochet the head the color switching occurs when changing the yarn type (changing to Yarnart Dolce). Other details are made without color switching.
Hola gracias por el patrón, el cuerpo está tejido en el mismo punto que el cuerpo? Parece que está en p.a. muchas gracias
I don’t understand your question, Google can’t translate it correctly.
She’s asking if the body is made with the same stitch of the rest of the body (head, legs) It looks like double crochet? (the body stitch)
This is bulky yarn effect, all the sheep made with sc stitches.
Hi bit confused the pattern states 2mm and 3.5mm hooks do you use 2mm hook on arms, legs, ears and front of head and it looks like two different yarns can you clear this up for me as I would have to order yarn from Internet
Hi, yes, you’re right. 2 mm hook for legs, ears and muzzle and 3.5 mm hook for another parts as they made with thicker yarn.
Thank you for this cute pattern, i have gone through the comments and i see some others have the same queries as me. Can you confirm what weight the yarn is? i would like to use yarn from my own personal stash. The arms and legs are they fingering weight or DK? as for the body this seems to be a super chunky – seems hard to use a 3.5mm hook with a super chunky – can you correct me if i have mis-understood?
Hi Michelle, please use 4ply yarn for legs, ears, muzzle and tail; and super chunky yarn for other parts. You can take 2.5 mm and 4.0 mm crochet hooks. In case of using bigger hooks you won’t get tight stitches.
Could I use something like Bernat Blanket yarn for the body, and Red Heart worsted for the face, legs, etc.? Do you think that would work?
Which kind of Red Heart worsted ?
Cutie and easy pattern
Is there a picture of what the tail looks like on? Thnks :0)
Hi Sophia, I added the picture of parts.
When you color change the yarn… do you also change the needle size? How is one able to use a 2.0mm hook with this yarn for the head, and the body… Thnks :0)
Hi Sophia, when changing the yarn you need also to change the hook.
Thnks… I was so excited to get started tht I missed that the info was
included in the instructions…lol
Hola! Quería preguntarle qué color utiliza (cotton gold) para las piernas y brazos? Gracias por su generosidad, es un modelo precioso! Saludos.
Hallo gibt es die tolle Anleitung bitte auch auf deutsch und zum ausdrucken bitte
What does the tail look like? So far it’s a flat circle.
Hi Louise, the tail is not flat. I added the photo of different parts, please have a look at it 🙂
Hi! Are you working continuously, without making slipstitch at the end of the row?
Yes, work in a spiral continuously.
You do not have how to make your magic rings. You do not have the amount of chains to make your magic rings. Love your sheep and duck patterns.
Hi Lisa, please watch the video-tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kc1OWrPqxuU
The body of this sheep & top of head look like a bobble stitch; but the pattern indicates only sc. Is the pattern written incorrectly?
Hi Karen, it’s not a bobble stitch, it’s a specific kind of yarn.
Hi, I have super chunky chenille yarn which is the equivalent of the one in the pattern but the bobble isn’t as big as it looks in the picture. Just wondering if a bigger hook will make the bobble bigger?
Hi Louise, yes, the bigger hook can help.
I love this sheep. It’s so adorable but I got the yarn and hooks as per your instructions and the sheep is coming out way smaller than what it looks like in your picture. Do you know how big the completed sheep should be? Just curious at this point. Thank you in advance!! Jill ❤️
Hi, crocheting is like fingerprints, so adjust size of hooks to your style. Some crochet tighter than others.
Has anyone got any tips for crotchet with the thick yarn as I am unable to see the stitches. I am using the yarn suggested but I am having to guess where the stitches are? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous pattern 💕
Hello, I am wondering if you would allow the selling of the finished sheep? I know of some people who would love to buy them.
Hi Jodi, yes, you can sell your finished toys giving a credit to our website, but no more than 50 items per month 🙂
Super, thank so much! You’re awesome for sharing this pattern.
You’re welcome! 🙂🌺
Ho my these sheep are adorable , could I sale finished product please 😊.
Hi Tracey 🙂 Yes, you can sell your finished toys giving a credit to our website, but no more than 50 items per month 🙂
Hi, you have fantastic tutorials, i love you works and have some question. I have channel on Youtube and i want to use some of you project and take tutorials. I ask can i 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏💒💒💒🕊🕊🕊 I also write that this is you beautiful pattern and give the link, where people find this tutorials. Do you agree? Please. Thanks for respond. 😘😘
Hi Johanna, unfortunately, this is prohibited. Hope for understanding 🙂
Hello, I love this pattern and would love to give it a try. I have been through the instructions many times and can not find the ‘amount’ or ‘length’ of each yarn needed to make the lambs. Do you have those measurements?
Thank you very much!
It’s difficult to give such exact measurements, because yarn spending depends on many factors, such as hook, yarn and your own crochet density.
Is this pattern in american terms? What are the weights of both yarns that I need to get? Thank you.
Hi Echo, yes, the pattern in US terms 🙂 Please use fine (5 ply) semi-cotton yarn and super bulky plush polyester yarn, as specified in material list 🙂
I love this pattern and I made one . It’s wonderful . Thx 😍❤
Hi, I love this pattern and have made a couple of lambs using different yarns. It is so popular my friends are suggesting I try to sell them. Is that possible using your pattern? I saw another pattern allowed the purchaser to sell any items made as long as the pattern website was noted and the pattern was not to be resold. What are your requirements should I want to go in this direction?
Hi Deborah 🙂 you can sell the finished toys, but no more than 50 items per month.
HI could you share what kind of yarn you used that was different from the original pattern.
Hi, I found this site recently and would like to thank everyone involved with establishing a wonderful crochet and hopefully knitting for all of us that love this craft!!
I am a beginner after not crocheting for a very long time. So thank you for the detailed instructions and the illustrations, which help when I can’t really understand how everything should look!!!
I would love to make this sweet little stuffed animals, dolls etc. for my loved ones. But how special it would be if we could all try and enjoy making these cuties and give them to the little ones who are not fortunate enough to buy or be given such darling thoughtful gift????
Any information on where these gifts can be donated?
Thank you so very much!!
Thank you, Sandy 🙂 Lots of the toys made with the help of our patterns go for charity 🙂 I think many people have a big kind heart like yours ❤
I love it. Can you tell me how tall is it? Thank you so much!
Hi Ly, it depends on your yarn weight and hook size 🙂
Qué medidas tendrá la oveja si la realizo con ese tipo de hilo y los números de agujas establecidos en el patrón?
I love this little lamb and will have a go at making it for my expected grandchild. I’m so glad I found your site, there are so many wonderful things to make, I’m spoilt for choice. Thank you for sharing your patterns.
Thank you, Kate, for kind words! So much appreciated! 🤗💖
This is the first time I have worked with chanille type yarn and although I found it difficult to see the stitches at first once a few rows were worked it all became clear (well clearer) This is a lovely sheep pattern and I am so grateful that you give these patterns free of charge.. Well done to all patern writers Thank you
I love this sheep made nearly 2 in 1 day. Unfortunately we dont get the yarn you specify but i managed to make a plan. Hdc 2bobble it looks almost identical and a thicker wool acrylic blend.
Can you please give an estimate on the yarn needed to complete one of these? I will have to order the yarn and don’t want to run out mid-stream. I understand it depends on the size of needle and personal crochet style, but I need a beginning point. Thank you.
Hallo….ich möchte dieses süße Schaf auch häkeln. Ich verstehe die Anleitung leider nicht so ganz. Trotz Übersetzung ins deutsche. Wie genau ist das Muster des Schaffell?
Hoffe auf Hilfe LG
Möchte gerne das Schaf häkeln. Meine Frage: Kann man da nicht eine Anleitung in deutscher Sprache bekommen. Es wäre für mich einfacher zu häkeln, wenn man angibt ob es Stäbchen, feste Maschen usw. sind und nicht alles auf sc oder inc übersetzt ist. Würde mich über eine kurze Anrwort freuen.
Hello! What a lovely work. Congrats! I would like to ask you if the chunky parts (body, head) are knitted using the same stitch as the one in legs and arms. In other works, the flufiness is product of a different stitch or it is just because the yarn used is thicker? Thank you!
The same stitch was used. This yarn is thicker 🙂
This is a special wool?
Which stich do you use to make the head and body?
Yes, this is a special plush wool 🙂 The head and body are made with single crochet stitches.
Very cute. I am almost done. However, the assembly directions snd details for face leave much to be desired. If I was a beginner, I would be very disappointed. But that’s just my 2 cents worth.
Thanks for free pattern but no directions for eyes or sewing.
In a local shop we have a yarn which has bobbles and thin yarn between them which I am boing to try.
If you use bigger hooks such as 3mm and a 4mm will it make the finished sheep bigger
Yes slightly, but take care as it will make the gaps in between each stitch bigger as well. You may be able to see the stuffing through it. Hope that helps.
After reading the couple of whingey comments I just wanted to say 2 things, 1) Thank you for sharing this. 2) I’m a beginner and I can’t usually follow patterns but this one is so simple, I’m nearly finished it. I used chenille wool as stated and it actually looks like it’s supposed to. Will definitely be making another.
Thank you, Lisa! 🙂
I love your pattern by I’m still having problem with getting the right size on the needle. I’m using Bernat Baby Blanket yarn which is Super Bulky. Could you please tell me in US needle size which size to us for the body and head.
Thanks for all your help.
Wanda Wood, I used the Bernat Blanket yarn too – I used the 3.5 mm hook and I used i Love This Cotton with a 2 mm hook – the Bernat was a little difficult to see all of the stitches but I love how it turned out… Hope this helps… good luck
Le pecorelle sono bellissime e origina ,vorrei provare a farne una ma sto avento problemi a reperire il filato adatto. Potresti aiutarmi? Nella mia città,Siracusa, purtrppo ci sono poche mercerie. Mi puoi aiutare?Grazie
Me gustaria ver una foto donde se vean detalles de todas las partes para poder ensamblarlas.Gracias
I’m having trouble finding the specific yarn listed, any information on where to buy it, or a substitution would be helpful.
Hi this is a great cute lovely sheep. Just wondering how to see the eyes… Thanks
WOW! This is my first try at any amigurumi patterns as I can’t read patterns in general but it turned out great! I will save and reuse this many times over. Before I even finished my kids we’re beggig for more of them. I don’t think not knowing markings of where the extremities go is a big deal, you can kind of look and tell. Just count and use a stitch marker or different color yarn to hold the right while you stitch the left. Thank you so much for this great pattern.
Thankyou for the patten ,it’s worked up fab and so easy,not a single problem ,I used a 2.5 hook and DK yarn for the head arms etc and a size 4 hook with plush yarn for head and body ,
Great pattern but the assembly instructions leave a lot to be desired. As it’s written, I’d say it’s an experienced amigurumi makers pattern. For example, if someone wants to use safety eyes and waits until you say to add the eyes, it would be to late to use them. Simply saying assemble parts isn’t that helpful. I’m using experience and what I feel “looks good” to put it together.
The placement is easy ,look at the pictures, they are only 3 or 4 rows from the edge of the head, and roughly 3 stitches apart, you have to play around with eyes,,there mo hard and fast rules.
which part of the sheep (head or body) should I leave long thread for sewing two parts together??
Hola!! Una pregunta, como cuanto mide terminada la ovejita?
This pattern says “FREE” So how do I get a copy of the free pattern? What does “Free” mean to you?
I would really appreciate an answer to my question. Thank you
Hi Linda 🙂 You can use online versions of the patterns for free on our website and mobile app. PDF version itself is not free. Because it takes a lot of time to prepare the patterns. So, in spite of this fact all people who can’t pay for PDF patterns can view them on the website and make wonderful toys. Hope for your understanding 🙂
Thank you for this lovely and super easy pattern. Any additional instructions on the assembly would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Love your sheep patten! Thank you for sharing! I live in the US and I am having a hard time trying to get your” look” for the sheep! What are yarns comparable to US yarns available? Thanks you in advance! Yarn and hook size?
What are the 2 felt circles in white, lusted in the materials for. I can’t see them actually used in the pattern. Am I missing something.
2 felt circles are used for eye whites 🙂
I love your site, thank you for sharing the lovely patterns. Amazing work keeps our cold winter warm.
Having trouble with the head on sheep plush when l got to row 17_19 change to white only to find that’s it’s not long enough for the face should l use white wool to start then blue it’s looks ok once you turn it the other way
Hope everything is well, I need help sewing the parts on, i seem to have difficulty, it turns out asyemetrical. Is there a video where I can watch. (Since we are in quarantine all I manage to do is crochet)
Hi ar3 there any video tutorials on how to put it together ,many thanks x
Baie dankie dat u my aanvaar het waardeer dit baie
hoe gaan ek tewerk om die gratis patroon af te laai
love this. i just made one…wonderful pattern
El cuerpo y cabeza es en punto pop corn en las fotos. La explicación no.
Tú lo hiciste con punto popcorn?
Hola necesitaría saber que significa la abreviatura st y sc??? Desde ta muchas gracias
Thank you for offering us patterns! This is very kind of you! ❤
I am brand new to doing amigurumi, but not to crochet. I was reading over the pattern and looking at the pictures, but for the life of I cannot figure out where the GOLD yarn is going!! I think that I may have gone color blind!!
Help please, and thank you!! Is such an adorable pattern!
Not sure if you’ve managed to work it out by now, but I think the “GOLD” is just the name of the yarn that is used for the face / arms / legs.
Agree with your comment about how adorable the pattern is 🙂
El hilo Alice cotton gold es un marca, no un color
Głowa nie ma całego wzoru rozpisanego…
Petra. I can’t see where someone has answered your question. If not and you’re still wondering “Alize Cotton Gold” is the name of the yarn not the color. It took me awhile to figure it out myself.
Thank you very much for sharing your lovely pattern! I have never crocheted before … is there a tutorial video for this that i can follow please?
How much or each type of yarn will I need to buy for the Plush Sheep pattern?
