Free Crochet Goat Pattern

Hi Happy Crocheters! Here comes my new free amigurumi pattern for a crocheted Gunther the Goat. Its been a busy year, I’ve gotten a puppy and she is taking up all my time and has a very bad addiction to yarn so its hard for me to crochet lately.

Here is a puppy pic of Luna, she’s hard work and I have probably spent 40 minutes in total crocheting since getting her in May, but I couldn’t do without her.

Here is Gunther the Goat (minus his stomach patch on this pic). I’m thinking that if I have enough time before Christmas I might adapt him to be a reindeer for a Christmas decoration, all I would need to do is switch the horns for tusks, maybe add a little glittery scarf, possibly a red nose.

1. Wrap the yarn around your index finger twice. It will look like you have 3 loops on your finger. 2. Wrap the yarn around your index finger twice. It will look like you have 3 loops on your finger. 3. Pull or draw all 3 loops through the stitch. Now you will have 4 loops on your hook

 

4. Yarn over the working strand of yarn (this is the last strand on your finger) and pull through all the loops on your hook. 5. The double loop stitch is now complete

 

6. Using the left over yarn, attach a needle. 7. Sew together the opening so the ear lies flat.

 

8. Then pinch the bottom of the ears together and secure with a stitch. Fasten off.
9. Keeping the current loop on the hook, add the new colour to the hook with a slip stitch knot 10. Then complete the next sc in the indicated stitch solely using the new colour and pulling through all hoops on the hook. 11. Carry on with the stitches and as you can see with the image above the colour change is complete.

 

12. Showing how Rnd 6 & 7 of the legs pattern makes a indent to replicate a hoof. 13. Stuff the head and then add the safety eyes in your desired location. 14. Pin the nose in place, and add a small amount of stuffing underneath so it protrudes slightly.

 

15. With the remaining yarn, make the beginning of his smile by adding a lengthwise stitch 16. Then complete the face by sewing wide stitch for his smile.

 

17. Pin the ears in place and sew on securely.
18. Pin the hair to the top of his head and sew on securely. 19. Then complete his head by sewing in the horns.

 

20. Sew the rest of the body together.
18. Pin the tail to the bottom and  sew on securely. 19. Then complete the look by adding his beard..

 

20. On Rnd8 you stop sc in the round and begin to crochet upward to make the panel go to his neck.
