This is a great amigurumi pattern featuring the Pink Fairy Armadillo, an endangered species from Argentina. They are the smallest species of armadillo in the world, roughly the size of a large rat. They have an adorable piece of armor on their butt that they use to pack down the loose sand in their burrows. This pattern is a beginner to intermediate pattern with basic single crochets in the front and back loops for the armor. You will need worsted weight yarn and an eyelash yarn for the fuzzy body. You will also need four pipecleaners for the toe nails, this is still 100% child safe as the feet are crocheted in a special way. Lots of explanatory pictures and tips and tricks inside!
This armadillo works up to about 10" long (just a bit bigger than life size)! However if you want a bigger cuddlier one all of my patterns are scale-able so you can use larger yarns and hooks and they pattern will look the same!
You will need worsted weight yarn, eyelash yarn, 4.00mm Crochet Hook, Fiberfill or another stuffing, 4mm safety eye, pipecleaners, scissors, tapestry needle.
