Sheep EarMuffs For Kid Crochet Pattern

sheep earmuffs pattern

“Watching the snow accumulated outside your window, this winter is sure freezingly cold”, my heart whispering when watching the news about the cool winter weather. It is fun to have some outdoor activities with the thick snow; snowball fighting, making a snowman, sleigh ride, skiing, et cetera. and I hope you are able to keep warm too while enjoying the snow play; especially the little one who needs your tenderly care. I made these Sheep Earmuffs (ear warmers) for my daughter.

The design of these Sheep EarMuffs was inspired by the hilarious flock in the “Shaun The Sheep“, a children’s animation TV series. I especially love the big fat sheep, Shirley, who basically eats everything and gets into trouble for consuming those uneatable. Isn’t her big fluffy body so perfect as the muff? These Sheep EarMuffs are made up of loop stitches with a 1″ loop length. The head, ears, and legs are single crochet stitches amigurumi. Sewing all the parts to assemble the sheep, then attach the headband to become an earmuff. That’s it! Hope your kid finds it warm yet entertaining when wearing the Sheep EarMuffs.

By the way, if you are also a fan of “Shaun The Sheep”, don’t miss out on the tutorial by using pom-pom to make the sheep keychain.

    b. Sew head to the body with the top of the head at the center of the body.
    c. Sew legs at round 6 of the body, 5 stitches apart.

  3. a. While waiting for the glue to dry and eyes to fix, measure the length (L) and width (W) for the headband.
    b. Cut 1 rectangular from the microfiber with about 1″ seam allowance at each side for the length (total = 2″+L), add 1″ + 1/2″ seam allowance at each side (total = 2″+W) for the width.
