I found this free crochet llama pattern in German and I couldn’t resist making it! This is the first time that I’ve ever successfully completed a project written in a different language and I feel quite proud. If you need help translating the pattern, You can check out THIS post that details the process I used to translate the llama pattern.

Update: I got Ms Eni’s permission to make a video tutorial for this pattern! 

I used a 2.75 mm crochet hook and worsted weight gray yarn. to make my llama. In addition to the original pattern, I added a crochet saddle and a baker’s twine & pom pom tassel. (scroll down for saddle pattern)

  1. Ok I found the pattern in German and contrary to my maiden name I’m not fluent in the language ( I’m from Panama originally) . My daughter LOVES LOVES LOVES llamas and I need to make this for her, many of them so she can decorate her room, but I cannot for the life of me figure out the pattern. How do I translate it??? Please help

    1. I got in contact with the pattern designer and she said that she will be updating this pattern and translating it into English! Until then, I’ll write a little post for how I translated the pattern (I have no clue how to speak German either).

  2. I don’t have a clue about crocheting however my 97 year old grandma is a pro. Are the instructions in English yet? My granddaughter turns 1 this month and she is half Peruvian and loves Llamas. I would love for my grandmother to be able to make her great great granddaughter this adorable Llama!

    1. I just checked and the pattern is still in English. I made a big llama with chunky yarn for a baby shower gift and I love how it looks! I’m considering doing a video tutorial for the llama but I’ll need the designer’s permission first. I’ll keep you updated!
