Ok, I have shared a round up of lamb patterns before, but they are so adorable that every couple of years, you’ve got to check if there have been some new ones made. And lo, and behold! There has been! So enjoy this collection of lovely little lambs and sweet sheep knit and crochet patterns to make!

First off, we have this fuzzy Meemi the Sweetest Sheep Crochet Pattern from Marizza Toys which is made with a combination of sport weight yarn and plush yarn to make a super cuddly little stuffed sheep toy, a perfect gift for a newborn or for Easter!
This textured Sheep Security Blanket Crochet Pattern from Chipifriends comes in 5 languages and is an intermediate crochet pattern. This little lovey would make such a sweet handmade baby shower gift for a precious new baby!
How adorable are these little baby sheeps from bigbebez? I love little amigurumis (small crocheted toys) that you can put on a keychain! It’s a way of making something cute and adorable as a gift for an adult! This kind of thing is the perfect thing to make just because they’re fun and have around for a last minute gift!
Oli the Sheep Crochet Pattern from Chipifriends is an adorable little stuff sheep crochet pattern with that squiggly textured fleece that is so lovely to look at and hold. This pattern makes a great little handhold toy which would be perfect for a toddler to love!
The designers haven’t left my knitters hanging this time! There are some super sweet little stuffed sheep knitting patterns as well, starting with this Moss the Sheep Knitting Pattern from fluff and fuzz. This pattern includes instructions to knit both this sheep and the little lamb and is knit flat on single-pointed needles, not in the round. So if you are not someone who enjoys knitting in the round, this is definitely the stuffed toy knitting pattern for you!
One of the things I really love about knitting is the ease with which designers can create a picture with colourwork knitting patterns. This Knitting Pattern for Sheep in the Countryside Cushion from i Knit Designs is a sweet little knit pillow pattern that would be delightful in a nursery or to bring a touch of whimsy to your living space or bedroom. Who says all the fun and cute things have to be left to the kids’ bedrooms?
I cannot get over the cuteness of this Little Lamb Knitting Pattern from Cute Knit Toy. It looks so cute and cuddly. Cute Knit Toy has a bunch of other adorable knit toy patterns as well. A lot of knitted toy patterns have such obvious decreases and increases that I usually think they don’t look as good as crocheted toys, but these ones are so good!
The Sleepy Sheep Crochet Pattern from SS By Pederson is another adorable amigurumi sheep pattern that measures just 16 x 8 cm (6 x 3 inches) that will work up quickly and make a delightful handmade gift!
Can you even with this Mini Sheep Knitting Pattern from Cute Knit Toy? Three adorable little stuffed sheep in your hand? How cute is that? These little critters are knit in the round with double pointed needles and sock yarn to make these sweet little toys that are about 2.5 cm (0.8 inches) tall! How fun are those?!
While this little crocheted sheep pattern from Lilys handmade Store makes a little sheep a little bit larger, measuring about 6 cm (2.36 inches), it is still a super adorable little pattern that is easy to follow and works up quickly. You have to go visit the pattern listing because there is the most adorable photo of a box full of 25 identical little sheep made with this pattern and it is enough to make me want to make a box of my own bunch of little sheep!
The Brenda the Sheep knitting pattern from fluff and fuzz makes a larger stuffed knit toy, but it works up quickly with a chunky boucle yarn. This pattern is knit flat and sewn together, not in the round and makes this adorable chubby knit lamb that any child is sure to love!
I hope you enjoyed this updated round up of sheep patterns to knit and crochet and that you found something to delight you to add to your list of things to make. Grab a pattern and get making today or pin it for later.
