SEE FIG 3.
Leave the straight edges at the base of the ear inner open for turning
through.
Turn out to RS and pull all the tails ends down and out of the ear (it’s
best not to have any stuffing for inside the ears and you can use them for
head stuffing). SEE FIG 4.
Match the corner of the cast on edge at ear back with corner of cast-off
edge for head back seam – so joining E to F, then mattress sew along
that cast-off edge so sewing the inner ear to the head back. SEE FIG 4.
Then match the ear back marker with the corner at E and mattress sew
to join along the neck seam that becomes Head Back. SEE FIG 5.
Remove ear back marker.
Pinch the ear at its base and work a few stitches to hold this ‘pinch’ in

Row 45 dec) P2 tog three times - 3sts
Cut yarns and thread through all 3 sts - pull up and secure end.
From the nose seam mattress sew all along the brown/ beige muzzle,
stopping at the beige/ white colour change.
Join the fastened-off edge of the chin to the seam with a couple of
stitches for now.
It’s important to get the stuffing packed well into the nose and forehead
otherwise the face won’t look right.
Return to the tail end, working on one side of the body at a time, match
the front marker from the body back with the belly marker and mat -
tress sew to join from markers along to the backside seam.
Stuff the rump and body – take care when stuffing – not too much in
the belly but quite firmly into the neck and forehead – less so in the
cheeks.
Ease the front with the neck – the neck seam marker should match and
meet with the head back/ neck seam – the seam beneath the ears.
SEE FIG 8.
Then carefully ease the chin with the sides of the face and mattress sew
to join making sure you complete your stuffing before finishing the
seam. SEE FIG 9.

across the cast-off edge at the hoof.
Stuff the leg fairly firmly.
Join the straight edge, the inside of the leg – to the seam backside
seam. Make sure you have the right leg for the right side of the body,
left for left (shaping should be facing forward, leg seam towards the
back). SEE FIG 10.
Neatly sew around the open leg top joining it to the rump – refer to
the images for placement. – It is a little tricky and you may wish to
pin or tack it in place first.
FORELEGS Working on one leg at a time, fold the leg in half
matching row ends and mattress sew across the cast-off edge at the
hoof then join along the seam up to the last 5 rows – the leg top
curve. Stuff the leg fairly firmly.
Join around this curve onto the body referring to the images for

Embroider a tiny nose and mouth then work a ‘Y ’ shape around
the nose and above the mouth.
Work straight stitches at the centre of each hoof to create the

NOTE: Lamb’s legs are a little wobbly – if you wish him to stand you
may like to add small, narrow, wooden dowels (cake making dowels
for example) into his legs?
