Hi, today - just in short - I share with you a quick and easy project - Dolly the Sheep! by LOH. I translated the pattern into Polish recently (available here), so I attach some photos I took during the work.
I didn't make Amigurumi Workshop video from the work - just took some photos. Currently I'm working on a big project as a gift - I hope I will manage to make the Amigurumi Workshop video presentation and write down the pattern soon. Subscribe my channel and blog :) I publish projects that are completed and don't like to write on my blog about nothing, so I don't post much. I hope you find the useful info :) See you!
English pattern is here.
Designer: Galina Astashova
Skill level: Intermediate
I used the materials:
- DROPS Alpaca Bouclé - grey for the body.
- Kotek by Arelan (Polish yarn) - beige for the muzzle, ears and legs (+ black for hooves).
- YarnArt Jeans white for the eyes
Firstly, it is recommended to crochet 2 swatches with two types of yarn (bouclé/fluffy and smooth yarn).You need to check the size of the swatches you choose - everything is clearly explained in the pattern.
What else do you need, regarding the pattern?
- Hook matching the yarn thickness.
- Two small black beads for eyes.
- Needle (long).
- Stitch marker or scrap of contrasting yarn.
- Polyester fiberfill (stuffing).
- One beautiful button for the tail.
- Decorative flower.
***I started from the muzzle - crochet tight with smooth yarn. I like the technic for the nostrils - really clever.
Then I crocheted the body with fluffy yarn. I like working with DROPS Alpaca Bouclé - the yarn is soft and squishy, it consists of little loops.
Ears are crocheted with smooth yarn - I chose the beige Kotek:
Then four legs with black hooves (smooth yarn), stuffed lightly:
Instead of beads I had inserted safety eyes before I closed the opening and stuffed the eyes lightly.
You see all the parts below, so it was time for assembling/sewing:
Finally I sewed crochet little red flower. I didn't use the decorative button for the tail (I crocheted thin tail).
Do you like the sheep? :)
