Free Fluffy Lamb Pattern

07/28/2020
Hello everybody! I am very excited to finally release my first crochet pattern! It's taken me a long time to get to the point where I felt comfortable sharing, but here I am finally! I apologize for any possible mistakes, as this is my first time writing my own pattern! Feel free to sell any finished products made with this pattern, but please give credit to @crayoncrochetcritters if sharing on social media.😊

alternative to safety eyes: sewing little black eyes with regular black yarn

Abbreviations:

R = row

mc = magic circle

st = stitch

sc = single crochet

sl st = slip stitch

inc = 2 sc in the next stitch

dec = single crochet 2 stitches together

f.o. = finish off (slip st, then cut yarn and pull through)

(12) = number of stitches you should have at the end of the round/row

Assembly:

In terms of assembling the lamb, I don't really know how to describe the sewing logistics? Haha! So here's a picture of the finished project... and you can kinda just assemble based on the image! Hopefully I'll get better at this at some point!!! Lol!

Finishing touches:

For the nose, use pink yarn ( or yarn of choice) to embroider a small v shape

For the ears, feel free to apply blush to the inner parts of the ears for additional CUTENESS!!!!!

And that's about it you guys! I apologize if there's any confusion, and if you come across something that doesn't make sense, feel free to message me! I'm always in search of advice on how to improve!! Please share your finished products with me! :)
