Pattern Details

At Christmas I watched a brilliant documentary called “Hotel Armadillo”. While watching those cute armadillos (yes that is the correct plural) - the texture, the nine stripes, the joints - I found myself thinking “I could knit one of those”. I find myself thinking that quite a lot. So here is my new pattern - Armadillo. It is knitted with 4ply wool, and the finished armadillo is 16cm long from tip of tail to end of nose. I use quite a few of my usual techniques. Pieces are knitted flat, and there are some short rows to get the curve of the back, moss stitch to get the texture, and icord knitting on the tail and legs.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 16g 4ply wool
  • 2.25 doublepoint needles
  • wadding

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
