Recently I was asked by Practical Publishing to design some alpaca patterns for their Crochet Gifts magazine/bookazine. I've been away for the weekend, and I came back to find that the magazine had arrived (I think it's due out in the shops on 24th April), and I was delighted to find my colourful alpacas on the front cover!
They're made using Stylecraft Alpaca DK, an acrylic yarn with some alpaca wool mixed in, which makes it lovely and soft. There are two sizes of alpaca you can make, an adult and a baby, and you can make them in natural colours, or make them in fun, bright colours as I did.
Having just had a skim through the magazine it's full of interesting projects including lots of lovely toys and accessories (I definitely want to try the leather and crochet bracelet), so I'm really pleased my patterns are in there.
*Update: you can now buy the pattern in my Etsy shop *
