Curly Haired Llama Crochet Hat- Free Pattern

Hello Crochet Friends!

Recently we moved to the countryish. I say countryish because although it is in a subdivision, the country homes are just down the street. So, down the road, there is an Aplaca Farm. They are so stinkin cute! They are fluffy and gentle and so adorable!

Since I am a little nerdy, here are some differences I found out between the llama and the alpaca:

Ears: Llamas have longer banana shaped ears and alpacas have shorter pointer ears.

Weight: Typically, llamas are larger than alpacas.

Faces: Llamas have a longer face, while alpacas have a shorter smooshed looking face.

Purpose: Llamas have been typically bred for herding and meat while alpacas have been bred for their fiber.

Fiber: Alpacas have a finer fur than a llama.

So, now that I know all that, maybe this hat is a little cross between a llama and an alpaca! But I am going to go with a llama!

Let’s get to the pattern!

(This hat fits my 8 year old daughter and myself.)

Yarn: I used Lion Brand Hometown Yarn for the body of the hat, The color was Los Angeles Tan, For the nose, ears and tassels, I used Red Heart Tan, Red Heart Black.

I created several curls into a magic circle. (With tan yarn.)

Row 1: Magic circle and ch 15. In second ch from the end, do 3 sc in the chain and in each ch across. Slip stitch into the magic circle.

Row 2; Ch 15 and do the same as above.

Continue until you have as many curls as you want for your llama. I had 9 on mine.

Pull the magic circle tight and sew to the top of the hat.

Curly Q one, slip stitch into the magic circle for each curl

Sew a mouth and a nose onto your nose with a yarn needle.

Sew the nose onto the llama.

Sew the eyes onto the llama.

For Tassels

Cut 6 of 15 inch lengths of tan, black and tan yarn. Find the corner at the bottom of the hat and pull through. Fold in half and line up the colors. Braid the tassel.

Do another tassel for the other side the same as above.

And that’s it!! What do you think? Let me know if you make it! I would love to see!

Happy Crocheting!
