Tiny Alpaca Pattern


Knit tiny alpaca for your most discerning fiber-loving friends!

This intermediate/advanced-level pattern uses short rows to achieve the perfect alpaca shape, plus an inside-out technique for a purl-tastic coat with no purling required. The pocket-sized alpaca make adorable ornaments, keychains, cat toys, or “just because” gifts. A great project for scrap yarn!

NOTE: The finished project is very small and is not suitable for small children.

The pattern comes as a PDF that will download directly to your computer.

Also available as a Tiny Alpaca Kit!
