This sweater has gone to its recipient, so I can now share it with you lovely people!
Yes, those are llamas! A good friend of mine recently finished vet school and is crazy for llamas. Years ago, I remember sitting in a seminar with her when our favorite instructor came in wearing a a yoked sweater with llamas. My friend and I quietly argued about who would be brave enough to go ask her about it, and we ended up both going together. Our instructor was flattered, but hadn't made it herself.... So, eventually, I figured out how!
I found a great llama colorwork pattern on this hat, and adapted it so that the llamas would have saddle colors echoing the rest of the colorwork (Celadon, in Palette, if you're curious. The main body is Charcoal Heather). The rest is all EZ and Barbara Walker. Oh, yeah, and the endless Palette Stash. 1820 yards. Booyah.
