I didn’t even realise I was playing yarn chicken until it ran out but I have indeed lost one leg short of completing the Alpaca. I have now ordered some more which hopefully will arrive within a few days.
The pattern I’m using is Paco the Alpaca by Valerie of Old Soul Crochet Co. and it’s such a great pattern. I love all of her designs, she is so amazingly talented. Here’s a link to her YouTube channel Old Soul Crochet Co.
