That’s what Hannah used to call sheep. Now that she’s a very wise two year old, she’s moved on to calling them “seep”, but still enjoys shouting “baa baa baa!” when she sees them in her storybooks.
This pattern is awesome. The single crochet/ extended single crochet
(US sc, I believe you guys across the pond call it dc, right?) pattern makes a lovely, nubby texture to look like a wooly sheep without using annoying boucle or fuzzy yarn.
Baa worked up very quickly. She was done in less than a week of laid back here and there crocheting. As always, the worst part is embroidering the face and sewing it together without it looking deranged. I’m happy to report that I succeeded. This will be a very cute addition to Hannah’s Easter basket.
Note: The next time I make this, I’m probably going to stick a marble in it’s backside while I stuff it. Why? Baa is very front heavy and likes to tip over. I moved it’s front legs forward to compensate, but I would rather just add more weight to it’s bum.
And one more picture for good measure:
