Pattern: Cotton from “Oblivion Island”

image

Make your own Cotton the sheep/lamb from “Oblivion Island”, Haruka’s brave, loyal and sweet cherished stuffie!

Materials:

  • super bulky white fluffy yarn (I used “Loops & Threads Country Loom Baby” in “White”; medium beige yarn (I used “Bernat Handicrafter Cotton” in “Off White”); brown yarn (for eyes, nose and mouth); I used 1.5 skeins of the super bulky white fluffy yarn and 1.5 skeins of the medium beige yarn
  • 3.5 mm crochet hook
  • yarn needle
  • fiberfill
  • white felt (for tag)
  • two wooden buttons (for eyes)
  • brown, yellow, red, green and blue embroidery floss (for scar)

Note: I worked in continuous rounds (vs. joined rounds). 

***PLEASE follow along with my step-by-step blog post HERE to better understand this written pattern and to visually see how to connect the parts with all my photos! 

***IMPORTANT NOTE: There is technically a “right” and “wrong” side of crochet when working in the round.  Read about this in my blog post HERE.  When working with the beige yarn, ensure the right side is facing outwards.  When working with the white fluffy yarn, ensure the wrong side is facing outwards as this is the fluffier side (read about this HERE). 

FACE

Using beige yarn,

Chain 10

R1: Starting from second chain from hook, Sc 8 and 3 sc in next ch.  Turn and Sc 8, 3 sc in next ch [we are making an oval by crocheting around the chain].  (22 sts)

Fasten off.

HEAD

Using white fluffy yarn,

R1: Position beige face so that the ‘right’ side is facing you.  Pick up 60 stitches between Rounds 10 and 11 of face working clockwise (this will ensure that the ‘wrong’ side or ‘fluffier’ side of the white yarn will be facing outwards).  [Note: when following my step-by-step blog post HERE, I worked in the incorrect direction for the first round, so disregard the photos for this part.]  To see the technique of picking up stitches, watch this video here.
