17 Adorable Free Crochet Llama Patterns (easy!)

Llamas have been all the rage lately, and it’s no wonder—the South American animals are just so cute! Whether you want to crochet an amigurumi llama, make a cute accessory to wear, or add a pop of joy to your home with llama-themed decor, you’ll find the perfect project in this round-up. Let’s get started!

1. Billy the Llama

Free pattern by Elisa’s Crochet here!

With his oversized head, wide eyes, and curls, Billy the Llama is absolutely adorable! The pattern calls for worsted-weight yarn and uses only easy stitches, so it’s a great project for beginner crocheters or crocheters who are ready to try working in the round. It does require a bit of sewing, so make sure you’re comfortable with that skill before starting.

2. Amigurumi Llama

Free pattern by Grace and Yarn here!

Here’s another cute, curly-haired amigurumi llama. This one is a fantastic beginner project because there’s limited sewing—the legs, body, and head are all one piece—and because it uses basic stitches and worsted-weight yarn. Plus, the pattern includes lots of photos. And the scarf is such a fun accessory!

3. Mini Amigurumi Llama

Free pattern by Grace and Yarn here!

Grace and Yarn has also designed a miniature amigurumi llama, and though it’s small, it’s just as cute as the larger version! It’s another good beginner pattern thanks to easy stitches, limited sewing, and few color changes. I’m absolutely in love with the flower crown option!

4. Lovely Lola the Llama

Free pattern by Handcrafting a Life here!

This realistic amigurumi llama is absolutely lovely, and the blanket adds a fun pop of color. For the project, you’ll need both worsted weight yarn and hairy bulky yarn, which gives the llama his textured design. The pattern does call for sewing, but all the stitches are basic, so this is still a good choice for beginners.

5. Carl the Alpaca

Free pattern by Little World of Whimsy here!

Okay, okay, this is an alpaca pattern, not a llama pattern—but the South American animals are closely related, and you can always call your Carl a llama if you want! His plump body makes him so cute, and how could you resist his little hat and scarf?! The pattern calls for basic stitches and minimal sewing, so this is a fun and easy amigurumi project.

6. Loki the Llama

Free pattern by Jess Huff here!

Loki the Llama is a fun, customizable pattern that’s good for both beginners and more advanced crocheters. If you’re new to amigurumi, you can make the single crochet version, and if you’re ready for more of a challenge, you can make the loop stitch version. Both versions include both written instructions and video tutorials.

7. Tiny Llama

Free pattern by Eu quero Croche here!

Looking to make something tiny? Check out this adorable mini amigurumi llama, which measures just 4 centimeters when it’s finished! You’ll need crochet thread and knowledge of basic stitches, so this is a good project for beginners who want to try working with something smaller than worsted yarn. Plus, the pattern is available in both English and Portuguese, and it contains lots of progress photos.

Now let’s move from amigurumi llamas to llama-themed accessories!

8. Llama / Alpaca Hat

Free pattern by The Crafty Flutist here!

This llama hat is sure to get tons of compliments! It’s super customizable: the pattern includes six sizes from newborn through adult, and you can make the hat with or without ear flaps. Plus, it only requires knowledge of basic stitches, so this is a great beginner project.

9. Easy Crochet Llama Hat

Free pattern by Loveable Loops here!

This llama hat is equally adorable, and just as easy to make. The pattern includes six sizes from newborn through adult, and there are detailed instructions for each size, plus a stitch chart that will help you make the perfect earflaps for the size you choose. My favorite thing about this hat is the fun fringe that covers the llama’s eyes, though of course you could make the fringe longer or shorter if you want.

10. Crochet Llama Hat

Free pattern by Repeat Crafter Me here!

This round-up wouldn’t be complete without a fuzzy llama hat, and Repeat Crafter Me has designed the perfect one. You’ll need Bernat Pipsqueak for the fluffy texture and a worsted-weight yarn for the rest of the hat. Like the other two hats, this one comes in six sizes from newborn through adult. It’s a good beginner pattern since it uses easy stitches, but make sure you’re comfortable with using fuzzy yarn before you begin, because it can sometimes be hard to see your stitches. A stitch marker will come in super handy for this project.

11. Aunt Lydia’s No Problem-ma Llama Applique

Free pattern by Michele Wilcox for Yarnspirations here!

If you’re not a hat person, never fear—you can still accessorize your outfit with this fun llama applique. It uses easy stitches, so it’s good for beginner crocheters; just make sure you’re comfortable with using crochet thread and a small hook. The whole project is crocheted with a double strand of crochet thread to give it the perfect size. Add it to a denim jacket, a backpack, or anything you want!

And if you’re not into amigurumi or accessories, that’s okay—next up we’ll explore adorable llama-themed home decor patterns!

12. Llama Coasters

Free pattern by Inkgurumi here!

Your guests are sure to be impressed when you pull out these cute llama coasters! The pattern comes in the form of a detailed YouTube video, so you can follow along as the designer shows you each step. It’s an easy, beginner-friendly pattern that uses just single, half-double, double, and triple crochet stitches.

13. Llama Coasters Pot

Free pattern by Hobbi crochet here!

Here’s another fun pattern that acts as a pot to hold any standard coasters you might crochet. When they’re stored in this sweet-as-can-be llama pot, your coasters will look just like the llama’s hair! The pattern calls for aran-weight yarn, used double-stranded, and easy stitches, so it’s a good project for beginners. Like the previous pattern, it comes in the form of a detailed YouTube video, so it’s great for visual learners.

Just note that the pattern doesn’t include the coasters themselves, so you’ll want to use a pattern like this one for that portion of the project.

14. Llama Pillow

Free pattern by Grace and Yarn here!

Looking for a fun throw pillow? This llama pillow is just what you need! It’s made with worsted-weight yarn and simple stitches, so it’s a great place for beginner crocheters to start their home decor journey. Plus, the pattern is filled with detailed instructions and handy step-by-step photos. To stuff the pillow, you can use either a 14-inch round pillow form or fiberfill stuffing.

15. Llama Baby Blanket

Free pattern by Yarn Over with Natasha here!

Blankets are another great option to decorate with llamas, and Natasha has designed an absolutely stunning baby blanket pattern that even has textured 3D elements. This pattern uses the C2C (corner-to-corner) technique, which involves working from one corner of the blanket to another, making tiny squares like checkers out of double crochet. Don’t worry if you’ve never used this technique before—the pattern includes a video tutorial.

If you’re an intermediate crocheter, or a beginner who’s ready to try a new technique and is familiar with color changes, this is an amazing pattern that will give you the cutest blanket you’ve ever seen! It’s also a great pattern for visual learners, because you can easily follow the colored graph to tell when to switch yarn colors. There are also written instructions if you prefer that style.

16. Alpaca (or Llama!) C2C Crochet Blanket

Free pattern by Make & Do Crew here!

This is another awesome C2C llama blanket, and it features a really fun pom-pom-like border. Like the previous pattern, this one includes a video tutorial for C2C, as well as a link to a photo tutorial in case that’s more your speed.

The blanket is the perfect size to use as a throw and add a pop of color to your couch. And once you’ve got the hang of C2C crochet, this project will be an absolute breeze.

17. C2C Flower Crown Llama Blanket

Free pattern by Loveable Loops here!

Let’s wrap up this round-up with one last C2C llama blanket. I absolutely love the soft pink background and colorful flower crown in this design. The pattern comes with both a graph and written instructions, so it’s a good choice for crocheters of all learning styles. And if you want to make an even bigger blanket, check out the other three llama designs that Loveable Loops uses to make a four-part afghan!
