Sheep Blanket

After making my elephant baby blanket and my fish and duck baby blanket, a friend wanted to know if I could do a sheep blanket for her grandson. Inspired by Repeat Crafter Me’s bobble stitch sheep, I turned her pattern into one that would be usable for a bobble stitch blanket or a C2C.

I used Loops and Threads Snuggly Wuggly yarn, which I absolutely love for these baby blankets. It’s light enough that it doesn’t make the blanket too thick, but very soft for babies. I was also able to find multiple colors of blue and grey, which worked out perfectly for this blanket.

After sewing each piece together, I did a border with some simple single crochets, then added the scalloped edging. I like this edging for baby blankets because it’s easy to do, but it gives them a softer touch.

I wanted to make a stuffed sheep to go with the blanket, and there are so many cute (and some of them are free) patterns out there. However, I fell in love with this bobble sheep because it went so well with the bobble blanket.

I purchased the pattern from Amigurumi Patterns, and it was well worth the money. He was easy to make, and so soft and cuddly. I considered making a little scarf for him using one of the blues, but since it was for a baby, I decided to skip it.

I hope this graph comes in handy for all of those sheep lovers out there. I would absolutely love to see how this looks as a C2C blanket, so if you use this graph, go post a photo to my Facebook page and show me how it turned out.
