Crochet your own Crafty Llama!

Updated: Jun 20, 2022

As you’ve noticed, our name is Crafty Llama, so naturally we’ve come up with a free crochet amigurumi llama pattern for you to make at home! This is a beginner-friendly crochet pattern but you will need to know the basics of chain stitching, creating a magic circle, increasing and decreasing stitches, and making single crochets.


Tips:

  • Make sure to keep a tight tension when you’re crocheting so there are no holes that your stuffing can come out of.

  • Stuff your amigurumi llama with a lot of filling! You want it to look plump and hold its shape so fill it with a good amount of filling.

  • Put your stitch marker on the last stitch of every row to keep track of how many you’ve done. This can be a bit difficult at times, especially while trying to follow the pattern at the same time, so consider getting a row counter to make life easier.
