    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.

    Clear instructions are included to make this snail in a range of sizes, and you only need a little yarn - great for using up oddments!

    This 15-page pattern is fully-illustrated with colour photos and available in two versions: UK or US. Both files will be available to you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.

    The pattern comes with my full e-mail support! If you have any difficulties, please contact me. I am a real person and I'd love to hear from you and see pictures of your finished gastropods! :-)

    Important features of my crochet patterns: My crochet patterns include both a detailed 'tutorial-style' set of instructions with colour photos, and a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions - the best of both worlds!

    Please see my other crochet patterns.
