Farmyard Goats crochet pattern

It’s here! My final commissioned pattern, Farmyard Goats, is now available to purchase!

Farmyard Goats amigurumi crochet pattern by PlanetJune

Farmyard Goats is a mix-and-match pattern that lets you choose the options you want, to make many different types of goat:

  • Ears – floppy, upright, or none?
  • Horns – long and curved, shorter, tiny nubs, or none?
  • Beard, or no beard?
  • Contrast-coloured horns and hooves, or not?

You choose! Make any of my three pictured options in any colour(s), or assemble your own custom goat from all the included options – it’s up to you. 

Fun Fact: It can sometimes be tricky to tell a sheep from a goat, especially as some breeds of sheep are smooth-coated, and some goats are fluffy. Here’s the trick: if the tail points up, it’s a goat! Sheep tails always point downwards.

Meet the Goats

My billy goat has upright ears, long horns, and a beard.

I invented a fun new technique to make the curved horns – it’s almost magical how it works, and yet it’s super-simple to achieve! I think you’ll enjoy it 🙂

To me, this is the definitive goat, but I know that’s not the case for many people, so I decided to include other options in the pattern, so you can make lots of different goats…

My little kid goat has upright ears, short horn nubs, and no beard.

He’s a bit smaller than the other goats because, although I used the same pattern and hook size, I used mohair [goat!] blend yarn that was slightly finer than the worsted weight yarn recommended for the pattern, and 9mm eyes.

My Nubian goat has floppy ears, no horns, and no beard.

But, of course, you can make a Nubian with any length horns and/or a beard, just by mixing and matching the pattern elements – this is a very versatile pattern 🙂

    simplemente te puedo decir que todos los animalitos tienen una vida unica, eres muy especial para tejerlos. Soy jubilada y a veces quisiera poder hacerlos , pero no economicamente no puedo. Pero son hermosos sigue asi.por eso no te pregunte precios.

    Is it ok to make one of these goats and sell them? My daughter is crocheting and selling amigurumi to earn up for a mission and college and a relative wants her to make one for her as one of their goats just passed.

    I just finished the big goat in the pattern FARMYARD GOATS. It is finely sculpted. The body seemed too long. Anyway it is too big for my use. I would like to try the baby goat. Where do I find the directions? I see your above note to use thinner yarn and a smaller hook. I just don’t see how that would work.

      Hi Marcy, as it says in the pattern, the crochet instructions are the same – for the baby goat you’ll just use the short horn option (as explained in the pattern for the Horns). Please see my article on Resizing Amigurumi for more explanation on how to resize (look at Method 1 for changing the yarn, size plus the ‘choosing a hook size’ section at the end of the article).

      If you need further pattern support, please email me directly ( for assistance 🙂
