Balloo, crochet sheep pattern

My favorite moment of designing crochet patterns is when my new doll is finished and I can take pictures of him. It’s so much fun to do, playing with my fuzzy new 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 of over-critical and can’t see clearly how it looks anymore. But when the pictures are finished I get all happy and proud.

So, I present Balloo, my crochet sheep pattern. I called him Balloo, because he’s based on sheep from Drenthe and there is a big hurdle of these sheep in the surroundings of the village Balloo, nearby where I live. And actually, Balloo is a crochet lamb, not a sheep yet.

The Balloo crochet sheep pattern is available in my Ravelry shop, Etsy shop and you can also order the pattern directly from me here. It is written in standard American crochet terms. This crochet sheep is made with Istex Lett Lopi, a 100% yarn. Balloo is 5.6 inch / 14.5 cm when sitting. He’s very soft and cuddly.

The pattern contains a clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble this animal, with extra illustrations and example pictures at the bottom to help you get everything right. In the pattern you can also find what materials you need, the yarn colour numbers, in short, everything you need to know to make your own fuzzy lamb amigurumi. All the additional information you need to know about this pattern you can find in the shop listings.

What will come

An update about what’s coming:

"preparations for  Starfox amigurumi"

A Starfox, Fox McCloud amigurumi! I already bought yarn for the project, beautiful Letit Lopi, Icelandic wool, in a great store in Zwolle, Astrid’s wol.  I love the beautiful warm colours the Lopi yarn comes in. After that I’m going to make a crochet Valais black nose sheep.

"Sketch for crochet valais blacknose sheep"

I got the idea last year when we where in Switzerland. They’re so cute and I needed to make a crochet version of one. This yarn also comes from that shop in Zwolle.

I also want to make a red panda amigurumi. But first I’m making these two, of course after I’ve finished the little bear. And for all these projects, I will post the patterns here!

I’ve got a lot to do!
