Crochet pattern for a snail or slug.
These little characters are perfect on a twig tree - or for yarn-bombing outdoors. They are also great fun to include in a wreath, floral centrepiece or fruit bowl!
Carefully designed with a realistic, asymmetrical shell, this pattern uses a wide range of crochet stitches to achieve the perfect shape, making it an unusual and rewarding project.
For example, for an approximately 8cm (3⅛") snail you will need double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn as follows:
- 9m (9 yards) for the body
- 13m (14 yards) for the shell
You will also need:
- stuffing material
- a crochet hook to match your chosen yarn (details in pattern)
- a yarn needle
This pattern is fully-illustrated with colour photos and available in both UK and US versions.
