Llama makes drama crochet pattern

For a long time I’ve been struggling to post this pattern on a blog. I’ve had a lot mixed feelings as this llama key chain is one of my earliest designs and isn’t as perfect as I’d like it to be but on the other hand is still darn cute and quite easy to make, so today I finally decided to give this pattern a chance to be seen.

Supplies:
– sport/DK weight yarn
– 3mm hook size
– stuffing
– needle
– scissors
– black embroidery thread

Abbreviations:
sc – single crochet
ch – chain
mc – magic circle/ring
inc – increase (single crochet increase = two stitches in one stitch
dec – decrease
st(s) – stitch(es)
sl st – slip stitch

Pattern is written in US crochet terms.

Body:
R1: sc x 6 in mc, sl st (6)
R2: ch 1, inc x 6, sl st (12)
R3: ch 1, [sc, inc] x 6, sl st (18)
R4-9: ch 1, sc x 18, sl st (18)
R10: ch 1, sc, ch 7, sc in 2nd ch, sc x 5, sl st in next st, sc x 16, sl st (30)
R11-14: ch 1, sc x 30, sl st (30)
R15: ch 1, [sc x 3, dec] x 6, sl st (24)
R16: ch 1, sc x 24, sl st (24)
Now you’ll be shaping the legs, dividing body in two parts (both consist of 12 st but first leg will form a circle)
R17: ch 1, sc x 12, sl st (12)
