The Yarn

The yarn used to make the Alpaca My Llama blanket is Bernat Softee Chunky Super Bulky Weight yarn from Mary Maxim. Bernat Softee Chunky is 100% Acrylic and a lighter Super Bulky yarn. You can find a large selection of colours at an affordable price below.

Substitutes

If you’re looking for a yarn substitute I’ve listed a few that I think will work well. Make sure to meet the pattern gauge of 7.25 sts & 9 Rows = 4″ in pattern with 10mm hook.

It’s hard to find a Super Bulky Weight substitute for this yarn because most are thicker and bulkier than Bernat Softee chunky. The easiest sub is to use 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. Here are a few of my favourites.

Bernat Super Value

Red Heart Super Saver

Brava Worsted

The Hook

I love crocheting with my Streamline Hooks from Furls. They are light and easy to work with. I especially love the large hooks. They are so nice to work with and I can crochet for hours without hand pain. I used the Aries 10mm crochet hook and the Taurus 6.5mm for the Alpaca my Llama Blanket. Use code MJS15 for 15% off.

To make big beautiful yarn pompoms I highly suggest a Jumbo Clover, Pompom Maker. You can make a pompom so quick and easily with hardly any trimming. Or if you prefer you can DIY make them with a piece of cardboard or your hand.

You can purchase on RAVELRY OR ETSY. Or purchase the Digital and interactive pattern on RIBBLR.

Construction

The blanket and hood are worked using a 10mm crochet hook and 1 strand of super bulky yarn; you may substitute with worsted weight yarn by holding 2 strands together, double the yardage required. The hood pieces are made using a 6.5mm crochet hook. The blanket is worked from the bottom up, and the hood is worked separately then sewn to the top of the blanket. Turning ch doesn’t count as a stitch. For the striped pattern, yarn is carried up the side of the blanket so that there are no ends to weave.

Special Stitches

Loop Stitch (lp)Go through the indicated stitch, hold the working yarn with the index finger, place hook over the yarn, insert hook under the yarn to the front, grab the yarn to the back and pull through stitch, yarn over and pull through two loops on the hook.
