We share a beautiful beret pattern for both adults and children. It will protect your head and ears from the cold in winter. Follow us for Amigurumi leopard beret pattern and more patterns.

A bobble pattern forms the coat of this woolly chap. Make a whole flock for all the family or swap the black yarn for more of the cream to create a different breed of sheep.

SPECIAL ABBREVIATION

Make bobble (mb)

The bobble pattern appears on the reverse side of the hat as you crochet. Yarn round hook, insert hook into next st, catch yarn and draw back through stitch (3 loops on hook), catch yarn again and draw through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), *yrh, insert hook into same st, catch yarn and draw back through stitch (4 loops on hook), catch yarn and draw through 2 loops* (3 loops on hook), repeat from * to * 2 more times (5 loops on hook), yrh, draw through all 5 loops.

METHOD

The hat is started from the top of the crown and worked in rounds. The pattern is formed on the reverse side of the hat, so the wrong side of the work will be facing you when the bobbles are crocheted. The shaping of the face is crocheted in rows with individual balls of yarn joined in to work each section of colour separately. The ears are worked in rounds of double crochet and are not stuff ed, but are stitched into shape before attaching to the hat. Button eyes and an embroidered nose fi nish the look along with twisted cords and pompoms.

EARS (MAKE 2)

Fasten off , leaving a long length of yarn.

MAKING UP

Edging

Sew together the back seam of the hat. With right side of work facing, using 5mm hook and A, rejoin yarn to the back of the hat by the fi rst earfl ap.

Next: Work 1 dc in each of the 10[12] dc across the back of the hat, work 9[11] dc evenly down the side of the second earfl ap, **working in the next 3 dc along the lower edge of the earfl ap, dc2inc, 1 dc, dc2inc; work 9[11] dc evenly up the other side of the earfl ap**, work 1 dc into each of the next 24 dc across the front of the hat, work 9[11] dc evenly down the side of the fi rst earfl ap, rep from ** to ** to fi nish the edging on the fi rst earfl ap, sl st to fi rst dc (80[90] sts). If making a crocheted lining, fasten off  and miss out the next round of edging.

Next: 1 ch (does not count as a st), work 1 dc in each of the 10[12] dc across the back of the hat, ***with wrong sides together, working into the stitches of the earfl ap and earfl ap facing at the same time to join, miss the fi rst dc of the earfl ap facing and work 1 dc into each of the next 10[12] dc, dc2inc, 1 dc into next dc, dc2inc, 1 dc into each of the next 10[12] dc, miss the last dc of the earfl ap facing***, work 1 dc into each of the next 24 dc across the front of the hat, rep from *** to *** to fi nish the edging to join the remaining earfl ap and earfl ap facing (84[94] sts). Sl st to next st and fasten off .

Using a darning or tapestry needle and the long length of yarn left after fastening off , slip stitch the top edge of the earflap facings to the inside of the main piece.

Ears

With the long length of yarn left, sew the stitches from each side of the last round of the ear together to join. Bring each corner of the ear to the middle to shape and stitch together. Work a running stitch around the lower edge and draw up the yarn to gather the stitches. Sew the ears in place to each side of the head, stitching all around the lower edges to attach them securely to the hat.

Finishing touches

If making a crocheted lining, attach the twisted cords to the hat after inserting the lining. Weave in all the yarn ends. Place the small black buttons over the larger white buttons and sew in place on the face for the eyes. Embroider the nose with a single fl y stitch (see page 155) using yarn A. Make two twisted cords (see page 154) using B, each measuring 8[12] in (20[30]cm) long, using 6[8] strands of yarn. Make two 2[2⅜]in (5[6]cm) pompoms (see page 155) in A and attach each to one end of the twisted cord, then stitch the other end of the cord to the tip of the earfl ap. Weave the ends of yarn from the cords through the stitches of the earfl ap facings to prevent the black showing through the front of the earfl aps.

LINING

See pages 142–5 for how to make and attach a cosy fleece or crocheted lining.
