Lovey Lamb Crocheted Softie Pattern
A big ol' crocheted lambiekins for the little one in your life! This lamb is made in rounds of single crochet and bobble stitches that join, so the only seaming you need to do is to stitch on the arms, legs, ears, and pom pom tail. The suggested yarn is a washable wool for easy cleaning, and the texture is so much fun for little kids to touch. Simple to do, you .

Safety note: The nose and eyes for this softie are small, but have safety washers on the back. You need to make sure your gauge is no looser than what is specified so these won't come out, or get pushed back into the softie. As always, please use your judgement when using any kind of small pieces on children's toys. If you're worried, just stitch on eyes and nose with embroidery floss.
