Lucy, these are beautiful. I plan to make some sheep. Wish I were close enough to attend Yarndale. From rural Tennessee in the United States.


Would to come to Yarndale. Know that I will never be there. Thanks for sharing with us.


Look at those adorable little sheep! What a fun flock to have and to make!


Great job ,Lucy!!!


I know what you mean about accidentally making them look deranged with the facial embroidery, Lucy. For quite a while mine looked like the kind of sheep you might cross the road to avoid! It's tricky getting the balance between the 'related to a Cheshire cat' look and the 'downright dangerous' look. Thankfully I think I've finally cracked it now 😀


Oh my, I just love those lambs, they are so cute, Little lambs with a sweater!!
This time I think I'm running to look for some white wool to make a couple of them at least.
You are so talented!

Ohhhh - thank you so much - My granddaughter's love sheep and i've been looking for the perfect pattern and this is adorable. I'm going to make them a bunch of them and have fun with the yarns and flowers like you did - simply gorgeous

Oh my gosh! Those sheep have such personality! SO CUTE!!!


Hi Lucy, if you ever come out with the owl pattern I will be making several. Very sweet!


Lovely sheeps!

Both are adorable!!! Well done Lucy! I've had Frankie's sheep in my queue for ages. I can envision hoards of mini colorful flocks arriving daily for the sale. Best of luck with it!x

A cousin perhaps to the Yarndale sheep, one I made recently for a baby gift.

I was wondering about Yarndale! The sheep (and the owls!) are precious!
You're so good to know what you love to do and what you can contribute. I'd hate to be saddled with the logistics. It would be an epic fail!

Hi Lucy
That sheep makes me think of one of our favorite kids' shows - Shaun the sheep. So cute! I just died... :o
One year I will make it to Yarndale for sure, but this year I can't make it... It would have been lovely to see all the Shaun the sheep live on venue and enjoy the yarny happy atmosphere. I'm sure it is a very special event and I think you are a very lucky girl to be involved and doing what you do to contribute. Thanks for sharing and happy late summer.

Looking forward to the owl pattern, that's the theme for my classroom this year.
Wish I could visit you at Yarndale, but I'm sending my sheep as a representative from Luxembourg and a pair of socks for the line.Thank you for all your yarn inspiration throughout the year.

Great blog Lucy, you certainly did well designing a lovely sheep. I have posted one to you this week, hope it arrives soon and still have another sitting at home to enjoy. Anyone I showed it to loved it. This week two ladies i have met have started crochet so I directed them to your blog. I am sure yarndale will be a huge success. I wish it were a 4hr flight for me !!!

Great blog Lucy, loved seeing all the sheep. Mine has been posted to you so should arrive soon. Anyone who saw it thought it was loveley, I always tell them the person who wrote the pattern is the clever one and direct them to your blog. All the best to yardale I know it will be a success.

Love your blog Lucy.Its always a ray of sunshine in my day
Thank you from Australia


My dog looks like a lamb. Maybe you were not so far off all along!

Bonnie Reece

I love the little sheep. They are perfect for all the little scraps of yarn we seem to have left over from larger projects. Is there someplace we can get the owl pattern now? I need a little purse for cash & it would be perfect with a zipper on the top. I would be happy to pay for the pattern.

I have never tried amigurumi before using the flat pieces even though I have a book with several patterns but this little sheep is too cute to pass up!
My father was raised on a farm and even though they grew corn and soybeans they had some animals along the way. I have several pictures of my father with Captain ( the family collie) and a sheep he raised after it's mother rejected it. In every single picture that lamb is wearing a tweed cap! My father will never say why but it always makes me laugh. I think this means my Woolly Sheep will now have to have one just like it.


Those sheep are just adorable!!


Now, you clever girl, nobody ever designed anything without trial and error, and prototypes. That is how it works, and at least you have a designing ability which some of 'us' lack. I love the little owl (I'm a bird of prey freak) and the little sheep with woolly top is so cute. Maybe I should have a go at one with a green & gold striped top and see if I can get it away on time? Well done you and take care.


Hi Lucy must must post off Susie my sheep to join the flock she has a natty jumper crocheted in stylecraft Tomatoe and mustard ! Lovely post love Jenny xx


The sheep are absolutely brilliant, clever you sorting out the pattern. The owls are great as well. I shall look forward to seeing everyone's interpretation. CJ xx
