The nine-banded armadillo is the official Small Mammal of the State ofTexas. Unlike some of his cousins, he can't really curl up into a protective
ball, but his leathery outer skin works well against most enemies... except
motor vehicles. Don't be fooled by his tough exterior; he's all soft fuzzy
tummy and big feet underneath.
Sam uses only two colors of yarn and basic crochet stitches. Sewn together and stuffed firmly, he'll stand on his own, and embroidering the eyes rather than using buttons makes him a safe, unique baby toy.
To make Sam bigger, use a bulky yarn like Wool of the Andes Bulky and a larger hook
Size E (3.5mm): crochet hook
