This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms. With this very easy pattern, you can make a very rugged but cuddly sitting armadillo. With basic crochet skills you will be able to make this animal.

The crochet pattern contains

An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right.

Size of finished animal sitting

5.5 inch / 14 cm made with suggested yarn.


2 colours of worsted weight yarn, 1/3 of a skein of camel, 1/8 murky (mixed) brown, 7 mm animal eyes, pellets and fibrefill for stuffing.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
