A non-naked armadillo!

Over the course of yesterday evening and tonight I’ve got the armadillo finished. Unfortunately I misunderstood the instructions for measuring if the shell was big enough so I ended up adding a few stitches unnecessarily, which means it’s not really tight enough to hold him in when he’s rolled into a ball, but other than that I think he’s turned out pretty well.

I’ve really enjoyed making him and have had lots of little moments where I’ve admired the clever creativity of the designer luna in the ways she’s captured different aspects of the armadillo, like the ears and the shell.

I’ll definitely be making some more of these little cutie-pies!

  1. He is cute! I have a friend who wants to make the tiny little animals but she doesn’t know where to get the patterns for them. Do you have a source? Or do you just make these up??


    1. This one was a free pattern on Ravelry… Hopefully it should have linked to the pattern where I wrote ‘luna’ in this post, or I put a link in the previous post about it too. Let me know if they don’t work and I can send it to you 😊. Google searches for amigurumi free patterns usually turn up quite a lot of options too
