My crab should have put on some sunscreen, he’s turned a bit pink!

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the crab including 12 photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.
