Crochet Llama Granny Square - Free Crochet pattern

This cute crochet llama granny square is the newest addition to my blanket! Find the free crochet pattern below!


What's better than a cute crochet llama?! A cute crochet llama granny blanket! 

This square is just one in my newest themed granny square blanket. Last week I made a cactus square that you can find the free pattern to here.

I'm going for a llama and cactus theme for this granny square blanket, and I'm in love with how it's turning out!  I chose to do fun and bright colors for the accompanying squares.



I think this blanket is going to be super cute, especially for a baby blanket. The pink squares can easily be switched for a pretty blue for a little boy!

I plan on making at least one more applique to finish this blanket up. Not many appliques for this afghan, but I really want to make the llamas the star of this blanket!


I will be making my llamas with all different colored rugs. It's going to be a great way to use up a bit of scrap yarn!

I think this is going to be a really fun blanket. I'm already having so much fun designing it and seeing it come together!

You can see a little of how it's going to look in the photo at the bottom of this post!
