With his fancy, ribbon-bedecked hat, Maximilian the Snail is sure to take first place in any Easter bonnet competition. It’s all about the details for this happy chappie, with a shell embellished using slip stitches worked in a contrasting colour, plus curly crocheted streamers and tiny flowers decorating his titfer. He’s also a fantastic project to practise your shaping on – in fact, once complete, you’ll feel as if you’ve totally snailed it.
