Alpaca are beautiful creatures with very endearing faces, and they produce lovely soft yarn. This pattern has all the details to make two sizes of alpaca - a cute baby (or cria) and an adult.

The pattern is quite straightforward and suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi, with photos to help you. They are written using US crochet terms, and the list of abbreviations includes the UK alternatives. The pattern is a downloadable PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to open it. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making your alpaca family.

You will need:
Yarn A: main colour, use approx 70g double knitting (DK) weight yarn* for adult alpaca, approx 50g for baby alpaca.
Yarn B: secondary colour for face and ears, use approx 10g DK weight yarn for either size alpaca.
Small amount of black yarn to sew features.
1 pair 10.5 mm black safety eyes for each alpaca.
Tapestry needle.
3.5mm hook (US E hook).

Finished size: Adult approximately 21 cm (8.5") tall, baby approximately 17 cm (7") tall.

*Worsted weight yarn is a little thicker than DK but can easily be substituted and the pattern will still be in proportion, though you may need to use a little more and go up a hook size.
