Sheep Security Blanket Free Crochet Pattern



Welcome back to my blog! Are you all ready for some cuteness overload?


Today's free crochet project is all about a sweet sheep and a lot of cute crochet bobbles!


This adorable crocheted safety blanket is made of two crocheted panels joined together.

As you can see from the picture, I worked the upper one with a series of beautiful bobble stitches to give the blanket a nice texture.

The same stitches have been also used to create the head of the sheep, so to make the transition between blanket and head very smooth.


So are you ready to crochet along?

Grab your favorite yarn and crochet hook and have some fun!
