This is the second amigurumi I design for Ophelia Italy, this time I’ve chosen a subject that’s dear to wool-addicted: sheep!
To achieve a voluminous and fluffy fleece I thing a bouclé yarn is a nice choice. It’s a bit difficult to crochet using that kind of yarn, but do not panic! There are a few tips to facilitate our role of compulsive amigurumi maker.
The decision to make the body separately from all other parts is the first trick… so even if it is not absolutely perfect, a stitch more or less, will not be the end of the world, and while we will practice with bouclé yarn we build up a whole flock.
The crochet pattern is free! You can find the instructions on Ophelia Italy website, I used Apollo and Gemma yarns from their shop.
I hope to see many sheep!!!
Would love to make this sheep but it’s not in English and the one that is is only 1/4 of a page.
Hi Rhonda, I’ve just checked the page where the pattern is hosted and the English version is complete. But if you download the pdf you can only see the second half of the pattern, please follow it from the web page or print the web page – not the downloadable file. I’ll let Ophelia know of this issue. Thank you! I hope you’ll enjoy the pattern!
I can’t get the pattern, either. I didn’t even succeed in finding the PDF the above respondent refers to. Hope you can get this untangled!
Hi Betty, It seems that they changed their website/blog structure and removed the free pattern. I would suggest to contact them directly to ask if it’s possible to share the file with you.
Sorry about that!
