Crochet brooch pattern for a cute sheep

My first amigurumi project was a sheep, made using the puff stitch. Which, I thought looked unbelievably cute back then. Click here for some cringe worthy pictures of my first amigurumi. Still, I am glad that the first crochet brooch pattern that I’ve come up with is a sheep again.

Did you know about the recently trending amigurumi llama made using the fur stitch? I saw them on many Facebook groups and have been wanting to try them ever since.

Here’s my take on the fur stitch – a crochet brooch pattern to make a fluffy fat sheep. This crochet sheep brooch pattern can be adapted to make,

  • bags, backpack pins
  • brooch for clothes, jackets
  • a fridge magnet
  • used as an applique

  1. White 8 ply acrylic yarn about 50gm.
  2. Brown 8 ply yarn.
  3. Safety pin
  4. Crochet hook: 2.00mm.

Start with crocheting the two legs with brown yarn and work your way upwards.

Legs:

  1. Magic Circle 6sc
  2. sc around. (6)
  3. sc around. (6)
  4. sc around. (6)
  5. sc around. (6)

Make two of these legs, and join them using a white colored yarn.

Body:

Round 1: sc around the first leg 6sc, chain 3, sc around the second leg 6sc, chain 3 and join the first leg.

Note : We are now going to work the fur crochet stitch around the body. In order to leave space for the face and the pin that goes on the backside I have not done the fur stitch in those areas instead I have just sl st in them.

Round 2: Working in the front loops only, [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 14 times making 14 loops around the body. sl st in the last 3 stitches(space where the pin goes).

Round 3: Working in the back loops,
sc around. (18)

Repeat steps 2 & 3 for another 3 times till you reach round 9. In the end, you have four rounds of fur around the sheep’s body.

Round 10: Working in the front loops only, [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 5 times making 5 loops on one side. sl st in the next 3(allowing a small space in the front for the head), [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 5 times making 5 loops on the other side, sl sl in the last 3.

Round 11: Working in the back loop,
sc around. (18)

Round 12: Working in the front loops only, [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 5 times making 5 loops on one side. sl st in the next 3(allowing a small space in the front for the head), [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 5 times making 5 loops on the other side, sl sl in the last 3.

Round 13: Working in the back loop,
sc around. (18)

Round 14: Working in the front loops only, [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 5 times making 5 loops on one side. sl st in the next 3(allowing a small space in the front for the head), [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 8 times making 8 loops. (You dont need to leave any more space for the pin. Also, we only have 8 loops because we are not joining the last loop with the first one.)

Round 15: Working in the back loop,
sc around. (18)

Round 16: Again, working in front loops only, [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 17 times making 17 loops around.

Round 17: Working in the back loop,
[sc, dec] * 6 times. (12)

Round 18: Working in front loops only, [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 11 times making 11 loops around.

Round 19: Working in the back loop,
dec * 6 times. (6)

Round 20: Working in front loops only, [sl st in the first st, chain 5, sl st into the next st] * 5 times making 5 loops around.

Head

  1. Magic circle, 8sc around. (8)
  2. 2sc in each st around. (16)
  3. sc around. (16)
  4. sc around. (16)
  5. sc around. (16)
  6. sc around. (16)

Ears

Then sew those two ears to the head.
