Hey guys!

He’s all done, my first free amigurumi pattern, Hugo the Lamb! I actually designed him last summer (2016) but I think I’ve made around six different versions of him to get the pattern just right. I am very happy with how he finally turned out and would like to share the pattern with you today!

You might notice that Hugo resembles my blog logo, which is not a coincidence. Being the first amigurumi that I’ve created completely on my own, from idea to finished product and pattern, he inspired me to start a blog in the first place.

I’ve decided that Hugo the Lamb is an intermediate pattern, because of the joining of legs and use of bobble stitches. However, this pattern does not need you to sew on any pieces, arms and ears are crocheted on as you go along. This makes it kind of important to make the things in the right order, so ears and arms first. Good luck!

About the pattern

You can buy a cheap bundle of two beautifully formatted PDF versions of this pattern on Etsy. One version uses color, while the other is made in black and white to be more printer friendly.

Here’s the link to the Hugo the Lamb Ravelry page, if you would like to start a project there.

Items completed from this pattern may be sold, provided that you give Nea Creates credit for the pattern and provide a link to this post or the Nea Creates homepage.

Finished size: when finished, Hugo measures approximately 19cm tall, 13cm across the widest part of the body, 22cm (plain)/23 cm (fluffy) between the ears and 9cm thick.

Difficulty: intermediate

Notes: This pattern uses US crochet terms and SI units throughout. I use a smaller hook size than what the yarn calls for to get tighter stitches. Ears, arms, legs and the beginning of the body are worked in continuous rounds, the rest of the body is worked in closed rounds.
