An Easy to Crochet Llama Hat

An easy to crochet Llama hat allows the Llama love continues.  I love making fun and cute crochet hats.  I wanted to make a Llama hat/beanie to go along with my new found love and appreciation of those fun critters.  Llamas provide such beautiful fiber for knitting and crocheting.  I wasn’t able to get my hands on any llama fiber to crochet this hat but I did use a natural fiber, wool.  This hat is made using Fisherman’s Wool from Lion Brand yarns.   The feel is very comfortable and warm.  If you’re allergic to wool there are lots of other great yarn options available.  For the face, I used Vanna’s Choice yarn.

Originally I sized  this hat to fit most women but adjusting the hook size can help with sizing.  For example,  I originally made the hat using a 5.0mm hook (H hook) but found it to be a bit tight on my head.  I think that an H hook would be perfect for children.   To adjust for women I suggest using a J hook (6.0mm) and for men a K hook.

I have also made a free YouTube video tutorial for those who are visual learners.  You can find the link to that video tutorial on the last page of this post.

Crochet Apache Tears Hat the easy way

Crochet Apache Tears Hat the easy way.  When I first saw the Apache Tears pattern many years ago I fell in love with it.  My YouTube video tutorial for the Apache Tears pattern has been a viewer favorite.  With so many crochet and knitting projecting it seems I always have tons of half-used yarn skeins.   If you’ve been following my posts of videos for any time you will know how much I hate to waste yarn and God forbid throw away partial skeins.

While looking thru my stash I found some colors that I felt would make a nice colorway.  I choose shades of teal, mint, blue/greens and white.   This pattern looks best when using several colors.  You can make the hat all in a solid color but that doesn’t really seem to do the stitch pattern justice.   With the cold weather soon upon us I wanted to make a hat using that same great Crochet Apache Tears pattern.

For the Crochet Apache Tears hat you will need 5 colors of medium weight yarn.   I used small amounts and it was probably only a couple ounces of each color. This hat is for a 19-24 inch head circumference since it does stretch.   If you want to make it for a child I suggest using a smaller hook size perhaps a size H (5.0mm) hook.  The rest of the instructions would remain the same.

For those who prefer a video tutorial, I have posted the links to my free YouTube videos on the last page of this post.
