For no particular reason I wanted to try my hand at Amigurumi crochet while I have been having a few days off work.

I have only a little experience with crochet, and I had become fascinated by the possibilities of the Eds Animals patterns from TOFT ( but wanted to start with something small. After watching lots of YouTube videos and looking at various websites I decided to start with Sheep!

These little guys are about 8 to 9cm from head to tail, so they didn’t take long to work up. While I have no real idea what I will do with these cute little fellows – could be handy for that next unexpected baby gift – they have been great fun to play with and a good way to start to learn the techniques of Amigurumi.

Maybe a little Rabbit next?
