My favorite moment of designing crochet patterns is when my new doll is finished and I can take pictures of him. It’s much fun to do, playing with my fuzzy friend and I can see the finished project for the first time with a fresh view. After a long time working on a project, I become sort over critical and can’t see clearly how it looks. But when the pictures are finished I get all happy and proud.
So, now I present Balloo, my crochet sheep pattern. I called him Balloo, because he’s a Drents sheep and there’s a big hurdle of these sheep in the surroundings of the village Balloo, nearby where I live.
The Balloo crochet sheep pattern is available in my shop and in my Ravelry shop. You can also order the pattern directly from me here. It is written in standard American crochet terms. This crochet sheep is partly made of a 100% wool, the brown colour that is, and the white yarn is mixed of 68% alpaca, 10%merino and 22% polyamide. Balloo is 7,9 inch / 20 cm tall. He’s very soft and cuddly. The crochet sheep pattern contains clear instructions of how to make and attach him and a bunch of example pictures.
It is kind of silly, I always use 100% wool, but for the sheep fur a mix was more suitable. Balloo is a great new addition to my crochet animal pattern collection. The collection absolutely needed a sheep, the beautiful animal my amigurumi’s are made from.
