Shorn the shaveable Sheep

This summer I made a sheep, but didn’t know if I’d make it fluffy or shaven. I’m not that good at crocheting with fluffy yarn yet, so I decided to make a sheep that you can ‘shave’ by taking off his tiny coat. The first one I made for my grandmother, the second posed for the pictures in this pattern. I hope you guys like him! If you have any questions, find a mistake in this pattern or just want to show me your sheep (I’d love to see yours :D), please email me on anonymouscrochet@hotmail.com. You can also follow me on Instagram for pictures of my projects and for the adventures of the Traveling Dinosaur (@anonymouscrochet)!
