The sheep presents a very special challenge to knit lovers - because it is so soft that you would like to have more than one sheep at a time! So knit it.

You need that

  • each 50 g of wool "Bravo" from Schachenmayr (LL 133 m / 50 g) in ecru (Fb. 8200) and sisal mottled (Fb. 8267)
  • a crochet hook No. 3, 5
  • a pair of safety eyes in black, Ø 12 mm
  • about 60 g of filling cotton

And this is how it's done:

Loop stitch:

Turn the thread over once, insert into the next stitch (M), place the middle finger AND ring finger of the left hand on the thread, pull the thread over the two fingers and pull it through the M and the envelope (U) onto the edge. * Turn the thread over and pull through the remaining 2 loops. Pull the fingers out of the noose. In the last st of the row (R) 1 solid stitch (fM) without loop work (arb).

Crochet loops:

Crochet to * as described in the previous paragraph. Turn the thread over, cut into the next st, pull the two fingers out of the first loop and put them back on the thread, pull the thread over the two fingers and pull through 2 loops on the needle (Nd). Turn over again and pull the thread through the remaining 3 loops.
