Round 9-18: crochet without changes[12]
When you crochet the first leg fasten off and cut yarn on this stage. Don’t cut the yarn when you’ll finish the second leg, make the number of sc that are necessary to reach the place where the legs are joining (inner thighs). Take the second leg and make sc through both legs at once. Then make 11 sc on one leg and 12 sc on the other leg. So you have done round 19 [24]. In Round 20 make two inc in places of the joining of the legs on the front and back sides [26]. Fasten off and cut yarn.

Body:
Work with fluffy white yarn.
Use the larger crochet hook for this yarn. Thereby the body will be wider than two rounds which we have made for joining of the legs, and not so tightly.
Continue crocheting on the legs which have been already done.
Round 1: crochet without changes sc in all 26 st [26]
Round 2-7: crochet without changes [26]
Stuff the body.
Round 8: dec 13 times [13]
Round 9: make dec until the hole closes. Fasten off and cut yarn.

Round 4: (sc in next 2 st, inc) repeat 6 times [24]
Round 5: (sc in next 3 st, inc) repeat 6 times [30]
Round 6-9: crochet without changes [30]

Assembly:

  • Sew the head to the body at first.
  • Then take the legs. Sew the edges of the legs together to close the holes before you sew them to the body.
  • Sew the hair. The hairstyle should not fit tightly to the head. Leave small gap between the details on the back of the head.
  • Then take the ears. Fold them in half and then in half again to make nice form of the ears. Sew them to the head by the line of the hairstyle’s sewing. Don’t sew them just in the middle, move the ears to the back of the head a little.
  • Decorate the face as you want. I like when the eyes are not bulging over the muzzle but pushing inside a little.
  • Embroider the nose. Draw the cheeks and ears with pastel.
  • Hang the bell on the small piece of the yarn in the same color as the socks on the legs.

Your amigurumi sheep is finished!
