Mini Sheep: Free Amigurumi Pattern.

Mini Sheep

This Mini Sheep is a cute, fun and easy amigurumi crochet pattern. Make this cute little Mini Sheep just as it is or use it as an add on to complete your Nativity scene.

This free amigurumi Mini sheep pattern is crocheted entirely using single crochet, which makes this pattern beginner friendly.

* I always strongly recommend reading through the pattern and gathering all the required material before starting.

Quick Pattern Notes:

  • This pattern is written in U.S terminology.
  • This pattern is worked in a continuous spiral, hence using a stitch maker is recommended to mark the beginning of each round.
  • This pattern is beginner friendly.
  • Stuff each part of the sheep before you begin to decrease or else later you will find it difficult to get the stuffing in as the opening will be very small.
  • If you are using safety eyes, then I recommend placing the eyes before you decrease.
  • Make sure to leave a long tail at the end of each part,which can be use to sew the sheep together later.

Materials Required to make this Pattern:

  • 1 ball yarn (approx 25 gms) each in colours of white and beige or the combination of your choice.
  • A 2mm crochet hook or a hook that best suit your yarn.
  • Stitch Maker.
  • Fibre fill for stuffing.
  • Safety eyes
  • Tapestry needle to sew all the parts together.
  • Scissors to cut excess yarn.


  • Sc – Single crochet
  • Mr – Magic ring
  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • Inc – Increase. (Work 2 stitches into the same stitch)
  • Dec – Decrease. (Merge two stitches together to make one single crochet stitch)
  • Rnd – Round.
  • [ ] – The bracket indicates the number of repeats.
  • ( ) – This bracket indicates the total number of stitches in that round.
