Happy March, ya’ll! I have another free farm animal pattern for you today! Be sure and check out my first two, Billy the Baby Pig, and Cooper the Rooster.

Meet Lyla the Lamb! Lyla is a bouncy little lamb who is always sticking her nose where it shouldn’t be. Lyla has a way with others, though, and can make friends with just about anyone. She’s even good friends with the sheepdogs!

Dimensions: 3 in. (7.5 cm.) long & 2 in. (5 cm.) tall

Difficulty: Easy! This pattern is perfect for beginners.

Materials:

 Size E (3.50mm) crochet hook (I use Susan Bates HERE)

 Worsted weight (4 ply) yarn in cream, white, and black (I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice for the cream in the color, “Fisherman” and Walmart’s brand Mainstays for the black and white in colors, “Black” and “White”.)

 9mm safety eyes (I buy mine online HERE or HERE)

 Polyfil (or your stuffing or choice)

 Tapestry/yarn needle

Small amount of pink embroidery floss (for mouth)

 Stitch marker (I highly recommend these HERE)

The Pattern

Head (Starting in black or cream yarn)

R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook

R2: *Inc* rep 6 times (12 sts)

R3: *Sc 1, inc* rep 6 times (18 sts)

R4: *Sc 2, inc* rep 6 times (24 sts)

R5: *Sc 3, inc* rep 6 times (30 sts)

R6-8: Sc in all 30 sts (3 rounds total – 30 sts)

R9: *Sc 3, dec* rep 6 times (24 sts)

Now we are going to be making the curly fur. To make the fur curly, we will be using the berry stitch (bs). To make the berry stitch, insert your hook into the stitch, yarn over and pull through. Now, working with only the front loop on the hook, ch 4. Now yarn over and pull through both loops on the hook. Your berry stitch is completed.

Basically, from here on out, every other stitch will be a bs. I’ve written out the pattern here exactly how I did it. If you miss a bs here and there, don’t worry, it’s a very forgiving stitch. Just make sure you have the correct stitch count at the end of each round.

R10: *Bs 1, sc 1* rep 12 times (24 sts)

R11: *Sc 1, bs 1* rep 12 times (24 sts)R

R12: *Bs 1, sc 1* rep 12 times (24 sts)

R13: *Sc 1, bs 1* rep 12 times (24 sts)R

Insert eyes between R8 & 9, 8 sts apart. (Hint: insert the 1st eye. Count 8 sts from the hole where you inserted the 1st eye and insert the 2nd eye.) Take some pink embroidery floss and embroider her nose approx. one round below the eyes. It should look like a “Y” about 1.5 sts wide at the top.

R14: *Sc 1, bs 1, bs dec* rep 6 times (18 sts)

To make a berry stitch decrease, start making a regular decrease by inserting your hook into the first st, yarn over, pull through, then insert hook into the next st, yarn over pull through. You now have 3 loops on your hook. Using the loop closest to the tip of the hook, ch 4, now yarn over and draw your hook through all loops. Your bs dec is complete.

R15: *Bs 1, dec* rep 6 times (12 sts)

Stop and begin stuffing

R16: *Bs dec* rep 6 times (6 sts)

Finish off. Finish stuffing head firmly and use tail to sew up hole, then weave in your end.
