Difficulty

Materials

  • Crochet Hook, Size E/4 (3.5 mm) 
  • Stitch Marker(s)
  • Scissors
  • Stuffing
  • Pins
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Safety eyes, 12 mm
  • Red Heart Super Saver (worsted 4-Medium, 100% acrylic, 364 yds/333 m, 7 oz/198 g), Color (A) Aran, less than 1 skein, Color (B) Charcoal, less than 1 skein, Color (C) Baby Pink, scrap piece

Gauge

– Exact gauge is not essential to this project, but tension should be maintained.

Finished Measurements

Using hook size E/4 (3.5 mm) sheep stands about 6.5 inches tall (17 cm) and at the widest part around mouth and body is about 18 inches (46 cm) in circumference

Design Notes

– This pattern is written using US crochet terminology. I choose to use a size E crochet hook. That said, the ultimate desired result is to achieve a tight crochet fabric that when stuffed will not allow the stuffing show through. If a different sized hook works better for you, then by all means, use it! Do note, however, that if you change the hook size, or the type of yarn you are using, that this will have an effect on the size and look of your finished item.
– The majority of this pattern is written in rounds. The face will be created in rows.
– It will be helpful to place a stitch marker at the beginning stitch of the round and to move it up as you start each additional round.
– At the end of each round/row I will note in parenthesis how many stitches you should have once completed.

Special Stitches

Bobble (bo): I used a 4dc bobble in this pattern. Essentially it’s 4 half finished double crochets all in the same stitch that are joined at the end as one stitch. And because that is all sorts of confusing, here are some directions! You create the bobble as follows:

With the original single loop on your hook from your previous stitch(es)

  1. Yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch
  2. Yarn over and pull up a loop (three loops on the hook)
  3. Yarn over and pull through two of the loops
  4. Stop here! (two loops on your hook). If you were doing a full double crochet you would yarn over again and pull it through the final two loops to finish the dc, but with a bobble you stop half way, leaving the extra loop on the hook. One of the five legs completed.

Ok, now repeat steps 1-4, three more times, inserting the hook into the same stitch that you just worked into. Also remember that each time you repeat the sequence that you should have one more loop added to your hook.
Now, yarn over and pull through all five of the loops on your hook. This closes your bobble stitch. Congratulations, you just made a bobble!

>Design Note: When making bobbles some patterns will have you make a chain after you have made the bobble to secure them even more. I DO NOT have you make this chain in the pattern, simply make your sc in the next stitch followed by a bobble and so on as the pattern directs.

Working in rows
We will be starting at the bottom of the face and working towards the top

Ch 19
Row 1: Sc in the back bar of the 2nd chain from the hook and in each st across (18sts)
Rows 2-3: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across (18sts for 2 rows)
Row 4: Ch 1, turn, Sc in the next 4sts, [2sc in the next st] 10 times, sc in the last 4sts (28sts)
Rows 5-7: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across (28sts for 3 rows)
Row 8: Ch 1, turn, sc in the next 4sts, sc2tog, sc in the next 16sts, sc2tog, sc in the next 4sts (26sts)
Row 9: Ch1, turn, sc in the next 4sts, [sc2tog] 2 times, sc in the next 10sts, [sc2tog] 2 times, sc in the next 4sts (22sts)
Row 10: Ch1, turn, sc in the next 4sts, sc2tog, sc in the next 10sts, sc2tog, sc in the next 4sts (20sts)
Rows 11-12: Ch1, turn, sc in each st across (20sts for 2 rows)
Row 13: Ch1, turn, sc in the next 9sts, sc2tog, sc in the next 9sts (19sts)
Row 14: Ch1, turn, sc in each st across (19sts)
Row 15: Ch1, turn, sc2tog, sc in the next 15ts, sc2tog (17sts)
Sc around the entire edge of your face. When you get to the corner sc2tog taking one stitch from the top edge and one from the top of the corner that you are rounding. Decreasing this way made the face slightly rounder on the corners. I liked it better this way. At the end, sl st to the first st and fasten off. Leave a tail long enough for sewing the face to the body.

Assembly

Crochet Bobble Sheep | A Free Pattern by Jen Hayes Creations
  • With the face: Remember to add the safety eyes before attaching. I initially stuffed only the protruding portion of the muzzle. Then, before closing up the hole completely I added additional stuffing to obtain an overall shape that I was most happy with.
  • I highly recommend pinning all of your pieces together before sewing anything. This will help to ensure that you have a placement that you are happy with. Once you are satisfied with placement attach all the pieces with your tapestry needle.
  • Using Color (C) Add stitching to the nose portion if desired.
