In this book...are the instructions in Japanese?

yeah, all the books are in japanese - the patterns don't seem to have a whole lot of text and have the "charts" illustrating how the pieces are made - once you get the hang of translating them, it isn't too terrible - and for crafty folk, fudging the bits that can't be translated isn't bad Smiley It makes each piece unique!  lol.

The Blue Kitty's pattern is actually online, unfortunately it does not have the illustrations that are in the book to make things easier - the pattern is located here at what is presumed to be the author's (of the blue kitty book) website.  If you scroll to the bottom of the page, it has tables.
The first column is the round - the 2nd column is the number of stitches in that round.

I don't have my book availible for reference, but I think it goes as follows:
For the 1st table, make 1, I think it's the head
The 2nd table, make 1, I think it's the body
3rd table, make 2, I think those are the arms
4th table, make 2, I think those are the legs
5th table, make 1, I think it's the tail
6th table, make 2, I think they are the ears
7th table, make 1, I think it's the muzzle.

The increases and decreases are spaced evenly across the rounds.

Note that the muzzle is not symmetric, and you may want to tweak the pattern accordingly.


Good luck Smiley

since I can't crochet well I am gonna take a stab at knitting the sheep.  I would think that it would be easy enough to do....

ooh! that's a fantastic idea Smiley  I do both - maybe I'll see if I can work out some knit ones!

Lol - I'm self taught - with the help of a friend - while I do have reference books I rarely refer to them - this would be why my birds have jogs where I change color - because it turns out I haven't been working my rounds properly!
oh well, they're still good looking Cheesy I recommend just getting with some other people to show you the basics and then just make it up as you go along Cheesy
