Yarnart, Softfun by Scheepjeswool, Cotton Blend by Red heart, they all are very similar as

Kacenka.

 The dimension of finished sheep: the sheep is 32 cm/12.6 inches tall. Please remember,

that the size of finished project depends on used material and your own style of crocheting too.

Needed skills:

You will use only basic stitches, but working with the fuzzy yarn needs some practice. 

Instruction

The sheep consists of several parts – body, head, ears, cheeks, eyes, hands, legs and tail. You

will make all parts separately and then you will sew them together.

Body

• Use fuzzy yarn and crochet in spiral circle rounds. It means that you will not join the round

with SlSt and you will not turn the work after finishing of every round.

• Use small piece of contrast yarn or stitch marker and mark the end of the round with it.

• Crochet in back loops only. Insert a hook from middle to the back loop of next stitch. I used

contrast smooth yarn, to you could see better the stitches worked only into back loops only.

This bulging side becomes a wrong part of the work.
