How to Loom Knit a Goat

 This pattern is shown for a Sanaan which is good for other larger goat breeds, you will simply need to adjust the colors as necessary for the preference you are looking for. I have also included instructions for creating the smaller breeds, as well as how to go about removing horns and adding jewels. If you are looking for ears for the nubian or boer breeds give me time to work the ear pattern up. If you have my dog pattern I would suggest trying the dog ears where the ears are on the goat for a nubian or boer.

Also when you bring your original loops back toss the bottom loops over. Plus you don't have to cut your white when you change to doing the horn color.)

Sew head on first lining back of head up with the tail. When sewing on legs start off with the front legs, find the base of the 4 column that was left after the wrap and turn sew the legs on at the base. Lining up your back legs on the same line as the front but start sewing from the purled row forward. Hot glue or sew on your eyes lined up between the horn and ears at the base of the snout. Weave in and trim up your beard area under the chin. Your done!!!
Give me time to work up Nubian and Boer ears to add later.


  1. Scarlett,
    Is there a particular vendor, make, model and diameter of the eyes that you can recommend to us?

    1. I personally make my own eyes all the time and have considered making extra to sell. I do have a tutorial showing how to make eyes. It really isn't too bad just a little time consuming. After that I don't know who of what I would suggest. Safety eyes for stuffed animals are good but you would want a 13mm to 18mm eyes.
