There's always a black sheep in the family...

This darling amigurumi may be a black sheep but she's no disreputable member of the family. Another wonderful pattern from Amigurumi no Nakamatachi. Usually I'll make one amigurumi from a book and then put it away for awhile.. but this book has really got me hooked (please disregard the pun). I'm also eyeing the cat pattern, but I promised my son I'd make him a white Totoro and then there is the wool I ordered for needle felting that has arrived. So it's time to but the book away.

This is the cutest sheep I have ever seen! Thank you for sharing the pattern and yarn information! May I use which size crochet hook you use with this Patons Divine yarn?

Thanks! I tend to use a smaller hook than I should.. I like to make my stitches really tight. With Patons Divine I use an E 3.5mm hook. You could use an F 4.0mm hook if you like loser stitches, the furry yarn can get difficult with tight stitches.
BTW, I love your site. I had to add it to my blog list.
Thanks again!

Thank you so much, Stephanie! I am SO happy to adopt Mr. furry black sheep! I sure hope he will be happy here. I have that same book so I'll try to make him too! I love the cat in there also.

Thanks for checking out my blog and adding me to your blog list! So flattered ;)

Happy ami :)
