Rosie the Sheep - Free Crochet Pattern

Posted on 9-9-2016 by Kim Koopmans

Rosie the Sheep - With our free crochet pattern of this cute little key chain you can take your favourite friend anywhere you go! Rosie is a sweet, pink sheep available in different shapes and sizes. She can be a cute little comforting baby blankie for the littlest ones, a fun stuffed animal for your kids' room or a pretty little key chain. Will Rosie the Sheep be your new bestie too?

Rosie is pink, sweet and cuddly! The sheep is available for small and bigger kids and with the little key chain you can take her anywhere you go! The key chain is made of the cotton yarn Phil Coton 3 and the fluffy yarn Phildar Neige. First you're going to make a basis of Phil Coton 3 and later you'll crochet the fluffy Neige on top. This way the Rosie the Sheep projects are very suitable for beginners!
