Crochet lamb photo frame to keep your most precious one in fancy way

I designed this lamb photo frame with nursery decoration in my mind. I know how important is to have everything ready for the baby before it arrives. As a mama I wanted everything to be safe and very well organized for my baby. This lamb photo frame is actually a very fancy and safe for your baby. This lamb frame has no metal, wood or unsafe materials. It is made of yarn, pollifiber fill and cardboard. Even if it fall it can’t harm your child and is best way to keep your favourite pictures. It fits perfect for any animal themed nursery decorations.

While ago i ordered yarn from a local store and they sent me gift a lamb lovey. My daughter is in lone with here Sheepy and is taking it everywhere. This is one of the reasons I chose to make a lamb photo for the 1st design of my photo frame collection.

Rnd 12: sc in each st around. Work in BLO. (66)

Head ring:

–      With white yarn. Fill the ring as you crochet along. It will be easier and the filling will be more even. Do not fill it at the very end. Leave 2-3 rows space. Now take tapestry needle, insert the close side into the open one and sew it. You will have formed ring. After testing the pattern there was an issue with the length of the ring. It must fit the back of head. With my yarn I reached 70th rnd and it was enough but with another yarn you may need to adjust the rnd . After making the back of head make the ring with rnd that will fit your circle.

Work in spiral without joining the rnds.

Rnd 1: start with MR and make 6 sc into it. (6)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)

Rnd 3-70: sc in each st around (12)
