Mini Alpaca

The larger alpaca video is a great guide for making the mini, you simply are knitting instead if EWrapping. I have changed the legs up but nothing that can't easily be figured out.

Mini Aplaca

12 peg loom
looming hook
crochet hook
crafters needle
Bernat Tizzy Yarn for textured yarn and what every you would like for smooth yarn (scrap yarn)
2 rhinestones for eyes

DSCO: Draw String Cast On
K: Knit
P: Purl
I: Increase
D: Decrease
WT: Wrap and Turn
BOLB: Bring Original Loop Back
DSCOF: Draw String Cast Off
COF: Cast Off
CY: Change yarn
T: Textured
S: Smooth

Head: 12 pegs: Flat: Textured Yarn
Row 1-5: K
Row 6: K3 (Ear: CY S K2, I1, K2, I1, K3, K4 3rows, K3, K2 3rows, K3, K4 3rows, D1 K1, D1 K1, BOLB, CY T K2) K2 (Repeat other ear) K3
Row 7: K
Row 8: K8, WT, K4, WT, K3, WT, K2, WT, K2, K3, K4, K5, K9
Row 9: K
Row 10: CC S K
Row 11: ID from 12 to 8 pegs
Row 12-13: K
Row 14: K2, K1 3times, K1 3times, K2
Row 15: K6
Sew up snout, close back of head, and stuff. If you didn't do the BOLB sew your ears up. Note when stuffing I would suggest barely stuffing the snout, or even using some of your scrap yarn to stuff the snout. This will give you a more distinct difference in your head and snout area.

Body: 12 pegs: Circular: Textured:
Row 1-3: K
Row 4: P
Row 5: K5, (Tail: K2, I1, K2, I1, K3, K4 4rows, K3, K2 3rows, K3, K4 4rows, D1 K1, D1 K1, K2 2rows BOLB) K5

Row 15: D1 K1, K4, D1 K1 (10)
Row 16-24: K
Sew up neck, stuff, then close back end. Sew on head lining up back of head with tail. Sew up tail if you didn't do the BOLB.

 Legs: 10pegs: Flat: Smooth:
DSCO 10 pegs
Row 1-2: K
Row 3: P
Row 4-5: K
Row 6-15: CY T K
Close up bottom of leg and stuff. Make 4. Find the base of the 2 columns that were not wrapped and turned at the base of the body. Start sew the leg at the base back, follow that line and sew the back leg on starting from the purled line on the back end. Repeat on both sides. If you have questions here check the video. Sew or glue your eyes on following the ears down to the base of the snout and sew your eyes on there. Your done!!!
(Note: if you want to do a darker alapaca I could suggest using 2 strands of textured yarn rather than one, reason being is with darker colors the filling will show through. )
