Adorable Little Lamb Amigurumi
Our Adorable Little Lamb has just arrived. She is sweet and shy and feeling a little bit sheepish because she was the last to arrive.
Spring Chick and Baby Bunny are just happy that Little Sheep was able to join them. They don’t mind that she was a little bit late! This trio of friends can’t wait for Easter. They are wondering if there will be an egg hunt again this year…
This Spring Amigurumi Trio is here just in time for Easter.
Each project should take approximately 1-hour to crochet, so you can make all three, or more than one of each if you have a favorite, before the holiday arrives.
This amigurumi pattern uses only simple stitches. The entire project is crocheted in single crochet (sc), double crochet stitches (dc) and sc2tog stitches.

The Poly-Fil Premium fiber fill used for this project was generously provided by Fairfield World.
Poly-Fil is the only fiber fill I use for my crochet toys. It is clean, durable and perfect for my amigurumi projects.
- Yarn: Scheepjes Stone Washed. (affiliate link) 50 g and 130 m. 78% Cotton, 22% Acrylic. Sport Weight Yarn . Machine wash and dry.
- Colors: 1 skein Moon Stone (801), small amount Rose Quartz (820), small amount Black Onyx (803)
- Crochet Hook: 3.25 mm (D) Clover Amour (affiliate link)
- Finished Project: Little Lamb: Moon Stone (16 g) and (41.6 m), small amount of Rose Quartz, small amount of Black Onyx.
- Scissors, Tapestry Needle (yarn needle), Stitch Marker, 2 x 7 mm black safety eyes
Little Lamb 2.5 inches tall X 2.5 inches wide
Working with your 3.25 mm (D) hook:
Approximately 5 sc stitches per 1 inch and 7 rows sc per 1 inch.
For amigurumi projects it is very important that you have tight stitches so the polyfil does not show between them. I have provided the gauge I attained with my yarn and hook but you can make your amigurumi in any yarn weight so long as you can adjust your hook size to have no spaces between the stitches. If you can see spaces between your stitches you need to try using a smaller hook, or crocheting with a tighter tension.
You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size, and amount of yarn used for your project will also be different.

- When you work the sc2tog decreases work under the front loop only (it makes the stitch less thick).

Little Lamb Crochet Pattern
This adorable little lamb is crocheted in continuous rounds, from the top-down.
Little Lamb Body
Using your 3.25 mm (D) hook (or size required for gauge):
Rnd 1: Make a DMR and work 6 sc into the ring. [6 sc]
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around. [12 sc]
Rnd 3: (1 sc and 1 dc) in each st around. [12 sc, 12 dc]
Rnd 4: *1 dc in the next st, 1 sc in the next st**. Work from * to ** around. [12 sc, 12 dc]
Rnd 5: *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Work from * to ** around. [12 sc, 12 dc]
Rnd 6: *2 sc in the next st, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts**. Work from * to ** around. [30 sc]
Rnd 7-Rnd 10: 1 sc in each st around. [30 sc]
Rnd 11: *1 sc in the next st, 1 dc in the next st**. Work from * to ** around. [15 sc, 15 dc]
Rnd 12: *1 dc in the next st, 1 sc in the next st**. Work from * to ** around. [15 sc, 15 dc]
Rnd 13: Rep Rnd 11
Rnd 14: Rep Rnd 12
Rnd 15: Rep Rnd 11
Insert Safety Eyes between Rnd 6 and Rnd 7. I placed the eyes about 2.5 cm apart (you can see 4 sts between them). Fill your baby bunny with polyfil but do not overstuff. If you can see stuffing between your stitches you either need to put less stuffing in OR you need to make the bunny with a smaller hook size to tighten up your gauge.
Rnd 16: *Sc2tog, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts**. Work from * to ** around. [24 sc]
Rnd 17: *Sc2tog, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts**. Work from * to ** around. [18 sc]
Rnd 18: *Sc2tog, 1 sc in the next st**. Work from * to ** around. [12 sc]
Rnd 19: Sc2tog around. [6 sc]
Finish off leaving a 4 to 5 inch tail of yarn for closing. Follow this tutorial to close the last round of stitches neatly.
Little Lamb Ears
The ears are a simple circle that is pinched on one end and sewn to the lamb’s head.
With your 3.25 mm (D) crochet hook (or size required for gauge):
Rnd 1: Make a DMR and work 6 sc into the ring. Sl st to the first st to join. [6 sc]
Finish off, leaving a 4-5 inch tail of yarn for sewing the ear to the lamb.
Tiny Bow for Little Lamb
With your 3.25 mm (D) crochet hook (or size required for gauge) and leaving a 4-5 inch tail of yarn:
R1: Ch 12, sk 1 ch, 1 sc in each chain across. Sl st to the first st to join (this creates an oval band). [11 sc]
Finish off leaving a 4-5 inch tail of yarn for sewing the bow to the lamb.
Using your ending yarn tail, wrap it around the center of the band, three times, tie a knot on the back of the bow with the yarn end from the beginning of R1. Sew the bow to the Lamb’s head slightly angled in front of one of her ears.
- Please see the following image for placement. I use my small tapestry needle to sew the ears to my little lamb..
- I used a small amount of pink (Rose Quartz) to sew 3 stitches on each cheek.
- I used a small amount of black (Black Onyx) to add the nose in “+” shape.
- Weave in any remaining ends securely.
