Start Your Smaller Amigurumi Collection With This Micro Crochet Shirley Sheep Set
Start your smaller amigurumi collection with this Micro Crochet Shirley Sheep Set. We all love our larger and more cuddly amigurumi characters, but things have also got a little smaller in the amigurumi world and Micro amigurumi is really the latest and most innovative thing in crochet, and it’s growing!
It’s as completely unique type of crocheting, but the results are utterly amazing and the projects no less interesting. You can basically ‘Micro’ any amigurumi character, so we thought we would find some Micro FREE patterns for you to make a start, if you haven’t already.
To purchase Micro characters, they can be very expensive, due to the time and tremendous concentration needed. If you can manage to adapt to this skill, they will make perfect craft sale projects.
The designer for these fabulous sheep is Ulijana Semikrasa at Double Treble Trinkets. She has used a size 0.4 mm crochet hook for the Micro Sheep and a size 1.00 mm crochet hook for the larger sheep, she also uses sewing thread to make it easier.

Ulijana has also made a few suggestions for us:
1.The lambs are not easy to balance, that’s why most of my animals come on a base (or button). The position of the head plays a big role too.
You may wish to crochet legs first (separately from the body) and then to attach them.
2.Re the white of the head: first, I decrease to finish the head, later, I rejoin yarn to make ‘hair/hat’
