Mini Alpaca Free Pattern

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

I got an alpaca plush for easter this year and I loved it so much that I needed a million smaller ones to go with it! This pattern is pretty easy, but it does take a little bit of patience! It's so much fun to make these in a rainbow of colors! They're just so fun! I can't wait to see what fun colors you make them!
