How to Crochet a Llama Wall Hanging

I don’t know about you, but I love llamas! If something has a llama on it I probably want it! So that makes this crochet llama wall hanging pattern one of my new favorite free crochet patterns I have on my blog. I’ve even found a way to do tapestry crochet with different stitches than the traditional single crochet or double crochet. This is an easy crochet llama pattern that you can easily learn how to do, and make for your home. If you love llamas too then you’ll definitely want to make this fun tapestry crochet wall hanging!

My Inspiration

I don’t know about you, but there is just something about llamas that I just love. Maybe it’s their fluffy fur or long necks, but whatever it is I just want one. It could also be how their close cousin the alpaca is tied to yarn. After I learned how to do tapestry crochet and started creating my own tapestry crochet patterns, one of the first ideas I had was a llama wall hanging pattern with bobbles as the fur. I wanted to find a way to get create with the crochet stitches used in the pattern, instead of the typical ones you use in tapestry crochet. After learning how to also do the lemon peel stitch, I knew I had found the perfect combination of textures for this design. So many fun stitches and things included in this pattern!

The Yarn

To make this wall hanging I used Hobby Lobby Soft & Sleek yarn, in cream and mauve, which made the perfect combination. This yarn ended up having an amazing drape that worked so well with the design of this crochet wall hanging. If you’re not a fan of these colors though, you could easily do this wall hanging pattern with any worsted weight yarn. I can just picture it in a nursery done in cute baby colors. Wouldn’t that be such a great crochet decoration for a kids room? If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, you can easily use any other worsted weight yarn in pastel colors to make this.

The Hello Summer Blog Hop

I created this fun crochet wall hanging for the Hello Summer Blog Hop, which is a super fun summer crochet event where 12 designers have gathered together to create 12 free crochet patterns. There are some amazing designs ranging from crochet home decor patterns, summer crochet garments, and crochet kids toys. There are some amazing patterns that the designers have created!

How to Embroider the Eyes

How to Make the Eyes on the Llama Wall Hanging

  1. Start stitching the eyes on by using black yarn. You’ll make a U shape. Make a line with your thread on the right side above the muzzle.
  2. Then do a line across back to the first line.
  3. After that, do another line down to complete the U shape.
  4. Repeat the same for the other eye.

How to Embroider the Nose and Mouth

How to Make the Nose on the Llama Wall Hanging

  1. Start sewing the nose/mouth by making a v towards the top of the muzzle.
  2. Stitch a line coming down from the center of the V to be where the mouth will be.
  3. Make another V to form the mouth, and fasten off.

How to Create the Bottom Decoration

How to Create the Loops on the bottom of the wall hanging

  1. To make the decoration at the bottom of the wall hanging, start by sl st through the bottom left corner.
  2. Then ch 10.
  3. Sk 6, and sl st in the next st.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 all the way across. You’ll sk 7 st on the very last repeat of this. Then fasten off and weave in ends.

How to Assemble the Tassels on the Llama Wall Hanging

5. To make the fringe, cut 7 strands of yarn about 10 inches each.

6. Then create a U shape in front of one of the chain loops you made.

7. Pull long strands behind the chain loop, and through the U you made. Pull all the way through and tighten to secure it. Repeat steps 7-10 4 more times. I did 3 different colors of fringe.

How to Secure Wall Hanging to the Stick

How to Secure Wall Hanging to Stick

  1. To secure the wall hanging on your stick. Position the stick at the top of the wall hanging. Thread your needle with yarn, loop it behind the stick, and back up through the wall hanging.
  2. Repeat this all the way across till you’ve secured the entire top of the wall hanging to your stick. Then you can cut another long strand of yarn, tie each end to the stick, and you’ll have a string to hang your finished wall hanging!

Now you are all finished with your crochet Llama wall hanging! Don’t you just love it??? I totally want to make another one in different colors and then I could have some llama twins.
