How to knit a lamb – free pattern and step by step tutorial
You loved the Baby Bunny free pattern we shared so much (get it here: How to knit a bunny rabbit baby – free pattern) that we decided to share this lovely lamb free knitting pattern too.
It’s another design by Claire Garland and I love how she captures the personality of a soft, fluffy baby lamb. Surely the cutest handmade gift ever?
Claire has kindly agreed to share her pattern pdf for free here (scroll to the end of the post to download the free pattern).
There are simple step by steps, tips from Claire herself as well as lots of beautiful images to help you. Hope you enjoy!
Claire’s creative ideas to customise your lamb
I’ve suggested using pair 8mm grey toy eyes with plastic backs – but, as this lamb would make a very sweet toy for a young child, may I suggest you consider embroidering the eyes instead. Either with a French Knot worked into the eye space with a large needle and some black DK yarn – or sewing small stitches that radiate around a centre spot like close together spokes of a wheel.
Also, I’ve used bouclé yarn but your could also try using another textured yarn like a chenille – and maybe knitting a little black lamb too?
