Cuddle and Play Sheep Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

(17 customer reviews)




I came up with an idea for this multipurpose crochet blanket with a thought of it being baby’s favourite TOY TO PLAY as well as something to CUDDLE and KEEP WARM while sleeping. This crochet baby blanket is especially handy when travelling either in a pram or a car seat. It’s not only SPACE SAVING (blanket and toy 2 in 1) but it also keeps the baby occupied in both folded and unfolded form. It can also be hung over the cot (and tied in to it with ribbons) when not in use or for smaller babies to look at. Not mentioning it can be used as a pillow or even floor cushion for sitting and playing on it. That’s 5 uses out of 1 blanket!

Thanks to using bobble stitch and chunky yarn in this design, the blanket will keep the baby nice and warm even on the cold day. It will also have a nice texture which makes this crochet blanket a sensory toy.

This Cuddle and Play 2 in 1 sheep crochet baby blanket will make a cute, original and at the same time practical BABY SHOWER GIFT.


Cuddle and Play Sheep Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern is written over 7 pages and contains very detailed written description supported by a lots of notes, photos, links to tutorials and videos.

I’ve also included 1 page photo instruction to show how to fold the blanket to turn it into a plush amigurumi sheep toy. This is available to download as a separate pdf file and it can be easily printed out and enclosed with the blanket if you are gifting it to someone. For details on materials Read more here.



STEP 1: Choose if you want to buy just the digital pattern (pdf) or a complete yarn kit with yarn and optional additions like a printed pattern, crochet hook, and other bits and accessories.

If you’d like to buy a kit, click here -> Dreamy Wool Sheep Yarn Kit

If you’d prefer just the digital pattern, go to step 2.

STEP 2: Choose which website you want to buy the digital pattern on:

Buy on Ravelry here -> Cuddle and Play Sheep Blanket Crochet Pattern

Buy on Etsy here -> Cuddle and Play Sheep Blanket Crochet Pattern

Note: The prices may vary due to fees and taxes imposed on my shop on those websites. For UK customers, it’s cheaper to buy on Ravelry as 20% VAT tax will not be added to my prices. Also, if I ever update the pattern, I can easily send updates via Ravelry, but I don’t have this possibility on Etsy, so you’ll not get any future updates.

    I love this pattern , it was easy to follow . I made this for my newest grandbaby which it had rave reviews. Thank you so much for this pattern!!

  4. Pauline Hardman (verified owner)

    I love this pattern! I’ve just completed my second blanket and given it as a Christening gift – such an unusual, personal gift! The pattern is easy to follow – the detail in the text plus the helpful pictures enabled me to produce this wonderful blanket and has given me the confidence to make crochet toys for my young grandchildren.
    I learned to crochet in my early teens (shown by my grandmother) but stopped crocheting in my early twenties probably not having time due to work, marriage etc. So now, over 30 years later this pattern inspired me to take up the hooks again….I even found my original set stashed in the loft!
    Thank you so much!

  5. Lucy LoParco

    The patterns for both the pig and lamb were well written and easily followed . I attempted to post the pictures without success ! The best I can say was from son was they are adorable. I send the via email to you as soon as said son can help me.

    Lovely enjoyable pattern. Started a week ago and have nearly finished the blanket. This is my second animal blanket I will attempt the Cow blanket next (pattern already bought). 🙂

  17. Sara (verified owner)

    Being bored during lockdown and with two grandchildren on the way, I decided to take up crotchet again after many years and with a bit of investigation online worked out how to do the stitches etc. The sheep was my first project, of which I eventually made four and an elephant. All easy to follow and came out exactly as the pictures. There is extra information on the crotchet arcade site for assistance and very happy with the whole process. I would recommend this site to anyone wanting a wonderful present for a newborn
