Pattern Description:

SHELLBY THE SNAIL TOY KNITTING PATTERNS

Shellby is a quick to knit little snail. He would come in handy as a pincushion, or you could knit a group of snails (an escargatoire!) and hide them in the garden and have a treasure hunt with the kids!

THE PATTERN INCLUDES:
Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the snail and photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.
