Shellby the Snail would make a handy pincushion, or you could knit a group of snails (an escargatoire!) and hide them in the garden for a treasure hunt. To knit your own snail you will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a kfb increase and a k2tog decrease, knit stripes and sew seams.

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the snail is knitted in acrylic DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round).

A pair of 3.5mm single pointed knitting needles (US 4).

Stylecraft Special Double Knit; double knitting/light worsted weight; 100% acrylic; a few grammes ini each shade.

Tapestry needle, toy filling, buttons to decorate, and scraps of white felt for eyes.

One size only - 7cm tall x 10cm long.

For confident beginners and above, techniques used include casting on and off, knits, purls, increases and decreases, and seaming to finish.
