Amigurumi Crochet Lamb Pattern


Okay, as promised, here is the pattern, or my alterations to the pattern, for the amigurumi crochet lamb.











Begin, by following the body section, of Lion Brands' frog pattern (rounds 1 - 23), only in white, rather than green.

Face:


In gray, chain 2.
R1: Work six sc in the first chain.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
R3: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc, rep from * around - 18 sc.
R4: *2 sc in next sc, sc in the next 2 sc, rep from * around - 24 sc.
R5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in the next 3 sc, rep from * around - 30 sc.
R6: *2 sc in next sc, sc in the next 4 sc, rep from * around - 36 sc.
R7: Sc in each sc around - 36 sc.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing on. Use white yarn to stitch on a nose, and mouth.

Then, sew the face over the end of the body, where the stitches are loosest, from decreasing.

Sew on two button eyes, just above the face. If the lamb is for a young child, you might consider using safety eyes instead, but then they will need to be added to the body, before it is sewed closed.

Legs:


Make 4, in gray.

Chain 2.
R1: Work 6 sc in first chain.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
R3 - 4: Sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing on. Stuff, and sew onto the bottom of the body.

Tail:


Chain 2, in white.
R1: Work 6 in first chain.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
R3: Sc in each sc around - 12 sc.
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing on. Stuff, and sew onto the backside of the body.

Ears:


Make 2 in gray.

Chain 2.
R1: Work 6 in first chain.
R2: 2 sc in each sc around -12 sc.
Skip one sc, slip stitch though next sc, pull tight to bring the bottom end together, and sew on to the top of the body, just behind, and to the outside, of the eyes.


It's great to be a homeschooler.

Okay, I give up. This summer I'm going to learn. Maybe that'll use up all the random assortments of yarn people keep giving me. "Ticia, you're crafty, you can use this."
