Pattern Notes

Lyle can’t wait to be a part of your family! This cutie works up in a long afternoon of relaxing crochet and is perfect to gift to your little one. This crochet lamb uses standard amigurumi techniques, so you’ll want to be familiar with that.

To crochet the body, I use a modified version of my popcorn stitch flower. If you’re struggling to get the concept with the written instructions, I recommend you have a look at this video tutorial:

How to Crochet the Popcorn Stitch Flower with Brittany

This pattern recommends that you begin the head, ears and legs with the magic ring. If you are unfamiliar with this technique, I recommend you check out my demonstration here:

If the magic ring is your natural born enemy, you can also use this alternate method:
