Cube snail is lovely and squishy, but never slimy!

This happy little critter is worked in the round and uses the following techniques:

  • slip stitch
  • single crochet (increasing and decreasing)
  • back post single crochet
  • double crochet (increasing)
  • amigurumi/plushie construction
  • magic circle round starts

Cube snail has some tricky bits and I would recommend him for intermediate crocheters and above.

The pattern can be worked in any yarn (with the appropriate hook size).
If working in the suggested yarns your snail will…

  • …be approximately 5”/13cm tall and 11.5”/29cm long
  • …need 110yds for the body, 90yds for the shell, 40yds for the foot and 12yds for the eyes (as well as a few scraps of black fabric and some embroidery thread).
