Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.8.
The area marked with grey has already been worked; it is there to show how the next round is worked into the stitches.
----------------------------------------------------------

SHEEP:
The head is worked first with the ears and hair, the legs are worked separately and then all parts are worked together. Then a tail is worked and you continue with the back of the body. Finally, the front and back are worked together with a loopy edge around the sheep.

HEAD, EARS AND HAIR (A.1):
The piece is worked in the round from the middle of the head and outwards. The head and ears are worked with dark grey and the hair with off white.
Start with hook size 4 mm and dark grey. Work A.1. Cut the strand and change to off white before starting the hair. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 is finished cut and fasten the strand.
Sew eyes and nose onto round 3 as follows: Sew 2 French knots for eyes – see diagram A.8, and sew 2 stitches for the mouth with off white – see photo. Lay the piece to one side.

LEGS (A.2):
Work 1 leg according to diagram A.2 using dark grey. Cut and fasten the strand. Work 1 more leg.

WORKING LEGS TOGETHER (A.3):
Now work a round of dark grey at the back of the head at the same time as the legs are fastened as follows:
Work A.3 in the back loop of round 3 of A.1 using dark grey – read PATTERN, at the same time as each leg is fastened as you go – see black squares in A.3 for positioning.

FRONT OF BODY (A.4):
Work A.4 using off white around the last round in A.3, then cut and fasten the strand. Lay the piece to one side.

BACK OF BODY AND TAIL (A.5/A.6):
First crochet a tail, then continue working the body around the tail as follows:
Start with hook size 4 mm. Work A.5 (= tail), then work A.6 in and around the first stitch on the tail, with the tail in the middle. Continue until A.6 has been completed. Cut and fasten the strand.

LOOPS EDGE AROUND THE SHEEP (A.7):
Now work the front and back together, using off white, as follows:
Place the front and back pieces together – wrong side to wrong side. If you wish to pad the sheep, fill it with a little stuffing now. Work from the front, starting at the chain stitch mid top of front/back of body as follows:
Work A.7 through both layers – the round starts at the diamond. NOTE: Work on front of the legs; the legs should hang where there are black squares in the diagram. Cut and fasten the thread.

Mit Drops Andes habe ich wunderschöne Schals und Stirnbänder gestrickt. Da ich Reste hatte, kam ich auf die Idee, den Wollstrang zu teilen. Die Farben passen zu den Rocking Sheeps - für zwei dürfte es auf jeden Fall reichen. Danke Lanade - die Anleitungen sind einfach SPITZE!

Guten Tag, meine Frage bezieht sich nicht auf das Schaf. Ich wollte nur fragen, ob der Osterkalender nicht weiter geht. Ich habe jetzt immer wieder probiert, aber ich sehe nur die ersten vier Tage. Freundliche Grüße, Ilona

Liebe Frau Dorn, es sind ja nur 4 Anleitung in dem Osterkalender, in dem Osterworkshop finden Sie aber viel mehr Modellen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dobrý den, všimla jsem si, že se vloudila malá chybička a část textu (popisy symbolů) je v angličtině. Můžete to opravit, moc prosím? Určitě chci tu roztomilou ovečku vyrobit :-) Děkuji Monika
