An amigurumi lamb with a fluffy white body and black face and legs

I had so much fun making my Amigurumi Highland Bull with Bernat Blanket yarn, I decided to incorporate it into my next pattern. Continuing with my amigurumi farm animal collection, I knew I wanted to make a little lamb which is perfect for spring! I wanted the body to look wooly without using a different crochet stitch. By using Bernat Blanket yarn for the body and Patons Grace yarn for the head and legs, I was able to get the exact look I wanted. The little lamb body looks fluffy and soft while the head and legs look like a regular amigurumi. The finished sheep is about 3 inches tall. She would be adorable with a little bow added to her head or a colorful scarf around her neck

Once all the pieces are made, all that’s left to do is to sew them together. Attach the ears sticking out to the side and the head toward the top of one side of the body. Sew the legs on with a little extra support since they are so skinny. Don’t you just love her sweet face?

If you make one, I’d love to see!

Happy crocheting!
