Yeah, it's short black faux fur.. and a pain in the rear to sew on a machine! It was just so soft though.. I had to use it  Smiley
Sad that the most luscious stuff is invariably the worst to work with.. I want one, though!!!!

It took me two days (which seemed like forever to me!) to work out this pattern, but here's my newest baby, a lamb! Just in time for Spring!





And if anyone is interested in trying out the pattern, here it is:

Baby Lamb

Materials needed:
ww or 4 ply yarn, white and black. (I used I Love This Yarn in white, and Caron Simply Soft in black)
Size F crochet hook
snap post eyes and nose or buttons or beads. (For young children, I would recommend embroidering the face details on.)
stuffing material
darning or tapestry needle for sewing the parts together

Abbreviations used:
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
ss = slip stitch
inc = increase (do 2 single crochets in one stitch)
dec = decrease ( insert hook into first stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through the two loops on your hook)

NOTE: As amigurumi is made in spirals, do not join rounds. Use a stitch marker or a piece of thread or yarn to mark the end of your rounds.


Head:

Using white yarn:
Rnd 1: 6 sc in a magic ring
Rnd 2: * 2 sc (inc) in next st* repeat from * to * around. (12 sc)
Rnd 3: *1 sc in first st, 2 sc (inc) in second st* repeat from * to * around. (18 sc)
Rnd 4: *1 sc in first  2 st, 2 sc (inc) in third st* repeat from * to * around. (24 sc)
Rnd 5: *1 sc in first 3 st, 2 sc (inc) in fourth st* repeat from * to * around. (30 sc)
Rnd 6 - 8: work even, no inc or dec (30 sc)
Rnd 9: *1 sc in first 3 st, sc2tog (dec) in fourth st* repeat from * to * around. (24 sc)
Rnd 10: *1 sc in first 2 st, sc2tog (dec) in third st* repeat from * to * around. (18 sc)
Rnd 11: *1 sc in first st, sc2tog (dec) in second st* repeat from * to * around. (12 sc)
ss in the next st, and fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing

Rnd 2: *sc in first two sc, 2 sc (inc) in next sc* repeat around (8 sc)
Rnd 3 -6: sc even (8 sc)
ss in next sc, and FO, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Assembly Directions:

I find it easiest to pin my pieces into place before sewing them to ensure proper placement.

Position and sew face onto head. (I sewed it on one row up from the bottom row of stitches.)
Gather ears closed by weaving yarn through last row of stitches. Flatten head with face panel in front. Sew ears to the sides of the head between rounds 6 and 9.
Attach eyes and nose. Stuff head and set aside.
Stuff body, and sew body to head.
Stuff legs and sew to front of body between rounds 3 and 5.
Stuff tail, and weave yarn through the last row of stitches to gather closed. Sew to back bottom of body, in rounds 3 and 4, or where it will balance lamb in a sitting position.
Do not stuff arms. Sew to body between rounds 6 and 8. Use extra long tail to sew arms into position if desired. Weave in all your ends.

My newest baby bunny, Bimbette, is here. She was inspired by the LionBrand Best Bunny pattern which I really liked the ears on, but not the rest of the pattern. She's crocheted with ModaDea Dream yarn, and an F hook. I haven't finished writing up the pattern yet. couldn't wait to share her with y'all!
