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!

Little Conkers exists to help you get the most from your time and pennies - whether you're making something for yourself or as a gift - as a way of spreading the joy of creativity.
I know that, for many people, creativity is often fitted into the slivers of time that you can find between all the other "must dos" in your life. But you know that making something yourself means it can be exactly what you need, look exactly how you want and can give you untold pleasure day after day.
My sewing and crochet patterns are specifically designed with the time-strapped and frugal in mind, requiring no superfluous equipment and including practical suggestions on how to up-cycle materials wherever possible.
I am a real person, and always love to hear from my customers all around the world. All my patterns come with my full e-mail support, so do feel free to ask any questions you may have. Enjoy your creating!
