Rosemary the Amigurumi Sheep Crochet Pattern

Published On: March 20, 2018 | Updated on: 2022-04-19T06:28:03Z

Happy Easter, everyone! Welcome to my blog! This is my happy place where I get to share with you all of my creative adventures! And today, I share with you my amigurumi sheep!

Mini Amigurumi Sheep Crochet Pattern

There are a lot of different symbols for Easter, and most of them I don't really understand, like the colourful eggs and bunnies.

Lamb/sheep is a very well-known symbol of Easter because Jesus was known as the "the Lamb of God". But apparently, lamb is a popular Easter Day meal...???

BB was born in the year of the sheep, so we naturally have an affinity for all things sheep-related.

I crocheted this adorable crochet sheep baby mobile designed by Repeat Crafter Me to hang above BB's crib when she was a baby. But we had to take it down as soon as she learned to stand because she was pulling and grabbing them and we didn't want the mobile to collapse on her.

I was hoping that the crochet pattern would yield a lamb large enough to cuddle. But the lamb came out smaller than the palm of my hand.

I should have known, because how would you be able to hang such a large ornament on a baby mobile. So I've set a goal to write my own crochet pattern for a larger-sized lamb -- large enough cuddle (for a baby)!

Shortly before publishing this crochet pattern for my amigurumi sheep, I was chatting with Hanson that I should probably give this lamb a name.

I thought... Would it be too cruel/ironic if I named her Rosemary? But then he reminded me that there used to be this lamb puppet in a popular child's tv program named Lamb Chop, so I guess it's not that far off from that.
