Llama-No-Drama Stitch Along
The Llama-No-Drama is an excellent crochet artistry amigurumi example from Yarnspirations. Designed by Nancy Anderson for Red Heart.
This a HUGE pattern and the best way to attack a great pattern, such as this, is to go step by step in increments. There is learning opportunities with this one that includes the Fur Stitch repeat pattern.
Upon review, this adorable and sure to get your friends and family members looking at you as an artist will surprise you on how big this is. It’s 14.5″ tall x 11″ long. It’s not a stuffie to get stuff between the cracks of the could.
To prepare for this stitch along:
- 3 Balls Red Heart With Love Aran. You technically only need a bit of Tigerlily, Blue Hawaii, Hot Pink, Daffodil and just a strand of black.
- 1 Pair, 15 mm pure black safety eyes.
- Stitch Markers.
- Stuffing. It’s pretty big, start with 1 small bag of stuffing and buy more at a later date if you need it. You will want to stuff this firmly.
- A mini box to store your supplies as you crochet this as you will have animal parts being created to assemble later on.
- You may want to buy an umbrella as your friends may shower you with compliments.
I am sure some of the parts may be a challenge that could create drama but hey, you are crocheting a Llama-No-Drama. So just hook to it and let’s hook up our very first adorable llamas.
The complete pattern is available to start at any time. The point of the stitch along is to break up the pattern so the entire community is stitching together.

There is a knit version of the Llama-No-Drama. I’m not skilled enough in knitting to teach this as a Stitch Along or even regular tutorial.
This project already exists. Some crocheters may have already done this project. The work for those crocheters has already been put into this project.
Existing Llamas should be completed as written. As stated below, you can change the colours or the yarn but to be fair to all entries, the project instructions (stitch-wise must be the same). If you have decided to add more character or embellishments, it will qualify.
Each giveaway also includes the complete collection of Crochet Crowd Pins (3 Pins each) and 1 Official Crochet Crowd Yarn Tote. Value $35.00
We will also provide a sampling of yarn inside the tote for your added stitching pleasure.
Shipping to your home is also provided.
