Original Pattern: Alpaca with Bikini
Knitter Extraordinaire: Joanna (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Inspired by the beloved children’s book character of Llama Llama, Joanna modified the original alpaca pattern to be more visually in keeping with the children’s book character. More info can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: What a wonderful way to make a special toy for a special little one- to customize a pattern so that they can have a beloved book character of their very own! I love the little details that Joanna used to get this just right – check out how well the embroidered eyes match the book version! For the pajamas, Joanna used a sweater pattern from a different toy and improvised the details to mimic the red pajamas that the story book character wears. A labour of love that turns out this well- you know that some little kid was overjoyed to get this!
