Meet Tip the crab… he’s soft and loveable, and not the slightest bit pinchy! Tip’s shell measures 7 inches tall when completed… with a 17 inch wide clawspan!

To complete this pattern, you will need:

  • size H (5 mm) crochet hook
  • 2 colors of worsted weight yarn (Ella Rae Classic is the brand used in the sample, less than a skein of each is required): red and white
  • two 12mm black animal eyes
  • polyester stuffing
  • tapestry needle

This is an intermediate level pattern, meaning that mid-level shaping (increasing and decreasing) is required.
The pattern is a pdf that includes progress photos!
