Alpaca Toy Knitting Pattern and a Giveaway

Its here, the knitting pattern for the Alpaca! I knitted him in a boucle’ yarn because I felt the it gave him a lovely texture. I really had to study this beautiful creature to try and create the perfect dimensions. The front legs seem slightly shorter than the hind legs and the chest is bold and strong with an elegantly straight neck and back. The tummy section is full towards the front legs and tapers off towards the hind legs… and what sweet, puffy tails they have too! What fun I had designing him!
His pattern is avaliable in my Mamma4earth shop.
Because this is a new pattern, I am going to have a little giveaway here and email the Alpaca pattern to 2 readers:) If you would like to enter, just leave a comment here in this post and a way for me to contact you if you win:) Giveaway will close on Tuesday evening South Africa time:)
Thank so much for visiting this space:)

Oh the alpaca is lovely, I love the yarn you have used.
Thank you for the opportunity, I usually knit a sheep in the wool I spin to represent the sheep the wool came from so an alpaca pattern would be lovely with the alpaca yarn I have recently washed, spun last year.
Thank you for the opportunity Linda, another lovely pattern xxx

Congratulations Dawn!!

The 2nd winner is:

    Oh, this alpaca is GORGEOUS! And you know what? I NEED to knit an alpaca, and fill every stitch with intention – cuz I want a real live alpaca at our farm. Someday. The knit version will keep me VERY content in the meanwhile. That way I can have a whole herd. Thanks for the giveaway chance, Linda.

    What a charming little animal. My friend and I were just planning a trip to visit an Alapaca farm/yarn shop here in Oklahoma and so I was extra pleased to see your new pattern. I would love to receive it!

    So cute. Is your alpaca made from alpaca fiber? Are the loops in his textured body from the type of spinning used in creating the yarn or part of the pattern stitch? Thanks for sharing !!!

    He is so cute. I did your dachshund dog and it came out really well. We have 12 alpacas. Six adults and six babies. They are so much fun to watch and are so friendly.

    Oh Linda. He’s beautiful. I love the lines of him. YOu make me feel like I’m holding still, darn it. Wait. Maybe I am. He has a GREAT head, a sweet face, a wonderful tail – very, very nice lines. Another triumph, you clever thing!

    What an incredible pattern. I’ve just finished knitting animals for my expected grandson who will be here in August. The alpaca would be a great addition to his “farm”. If I don’t win this pattern, I may just have to pay for it! Keep up the great work.

    That is the cutest!!! Pick me, pick me….I keep asking to be allowed an alpaca but hubby is not keen so maybe a baby one would be just fine 🙂

    I don’t know why but it always takes me ages to connect to your comment page, keep giving me the message that the page in unavailable??? I keep trying and eventually it pops up….I have that mantra going thru my head “if at first you don’t suceed….” 🙂
