The Armadillo shawl is a striped shawl that is worked with two colors at the same time without cutting the yarn between the rows. The shape is a slightly asymmetric triangle. The Armadillo technique is easy, but the first few rows can be a little fiddly. Each row is worked with slip stitches on the right side of the shawl and with double crochets on the back side. This shawl is crocheted from one side to the other which makes the color changes appear diagonal. The slip stitches in this patterns gives you a fabric like feeling and a shawl that keeps the shape. This shawl can be made in any size and the pattern describes two different sizes including yarn amounts for those.
