EXPLANATIONS

Color changes: insert the hook through the next stitch and pull the previous color alongback through the stitch. You have now two loops on the hook, just like when you make a regular sc. Finish the sc by pulling the new color through the two loops on the hook. Tighten the loose ends and weave them in thoroughly.

HEAD

Rnd 22: 7 sc, inc x6 (54)

Now we are going to make the bubble stitches. On the rounds where you work bs and sc alternating, be careful to ‘pop’ the bubble out to the right side of the work before tightening the single crochet, otherwise the stitches will create a bubble on the wrong side. Note that the order of the single crochet and the bubble stitches alternates on the next part of the work. On the rounds that end with a bs: this bs will become round when you begin making the sc on the next rnd.

Rnd 23: 1 bs, 1 sc (54)
Rnd 24: 8 sc, inc x6 (60)
Rnd 25: 1 sc, 1 bs (60)
Rnd 26: 9 sc, inc x6 (66)

Now, attach the eyes between rnds 18 and 19 with 9 stitches in between.

Rnd 27: 1 bs, 1 sc (66)
Rnd 28: 1 sc in each st (66)
Rnd 29: 1 sc, 1 bs (66)

Rnd 31: [1 bs, 1 sc x4, 1 bs, dec] x6 (60)

Rnd 33: [1 bs, 1 sc x3, 1 bs, dec] x6 (48)
Rnd 34: 6 sc, dec x6 (42)
Rnd 35: [1 bs, 1 sc x2, 1 bs, dec] x6 (36)
Rnd 36: 4 sc, dec x6 (30)
Rnd 37: 1 bs, 1 sc, 1 bs, dec x6 (24)
Rnd 38: * 2 sc, dec* x6 (18)
Now, stuff the head
Rnd 39: 1 bs, dec x6 (12)
Rnd 40: dec x6 (6)

Sew together the last 6 sts. Sew through one of the loops of each of the last 6 sts. Pull the thread to close the hole and weave in ends.

EAR (Make 2)
With color 002

For the ears you will be making smaller bubble stitches. You will do this by working only 3 unfinished dc in one stitch. I call these bubble stitches ‘smallbs’.

Rnd 1: Start with a magic ring. 6 sc in the magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: 1 sc in each st (6)
Rnd 3: inc x6 (12)
Rnd 4: 1 smallbs, 1 sc (12)

Rnd 7: 1 sc in each st (18)
Rnd 8: 1 smallbs, 1 sc (18)
Rnd 9: 2 sc, inc x6 (24)
Rnd 10: 1 smallbs, 1 sc (24)
Rnd 11: 1 sc in each st (24)
Rnd 12: 1 smallbs, 1 sc (24)
Rnd 13: 2 sc, dec x6 (18)
Rnd 14: 1 smallbs, 1 sc (18)
Rnd 15: 1 sc, dec x6 (12)
Rnd 16: 1 smallbs, 1 sc (12)

Fold the ear flat and sl st together. Cut off the yarn but be careful to leave a long tail for assembling.

ASSEMBLING

Head: The head must point downwards a little. It can be helpful to pin the head to the body first. Sew through the stitches of the body and then through the head. And finally, stuff some extra fiberfill into the neck before closing it completely to avoid a wobbly head. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Ears: Attach the ears after 3 rounds of bubbles – seen from the front side – with 6 bubbles in between the ears. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Legs: Place the legs under the tummy. They should point outward a bit. Sew the legs on about 3 rows from the beginning of the body. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Arms: Sew the arms on approx. 1 round from top of the neck. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Rouge: To give the Sheep pink cheeks, I have added a bit of regular makeup rouge.

And done!
