Pattern: Sheep freebie by Momomints
Yarn: Bernat Pipsqueak whitey white
Hook: size H
Notions: 6mm safety eyes and light brown and pink felt
This was the first time I had used Bernat pipsqueak yarn and while I will say it is very soft, it is a beast to crochet with. With this type of yarn, you have to 'feel' your stitches as you cannot see each stitch because of the fluffy fibers in the yarn. I would not recommend this yarn to a beginner at all.
I was surprised that I was able to stitch the body of the sheep as I was tempted to give up several times in frustration. I stitched up the feet and started on the face area. For some reason no matter how many times I stitched the face (even with different hook sizes), it didn't look right at all. So I improvised and made the face and the ears out of felt and left off the feet. I think my little sheep turned out fine with my changes though I wish I had been able to use Momomints' pattern completely as it was cute.
I don't think I will give up on using Bernat pipsqueak yarn as it gives a great texture to amigurumi, but I will choose my patterns wisely as I don't think I could crochet anything large with the yarn for fear of missing stitches, etc. 0_0
