Shellby the Snail by Amanda Berry - Digital Version
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!
All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. This pattern just uses 4 stitches: knit, purl, a kfb increase and a k2tog decrease. You will also need to know how to knit stripes (i.e. changing colour at the end of a row).
Shellby is 7cm tall and 10cm long, to make him you will need 3.5mm straight knitting needles. For the eyes you'll need black embroidery thread, small circles of white felt fabric and a sewing needle. Toy filling (less than 25g). 2 x 8mm diameter bule buttons to decorate shell. A darning or tapestry needle to sew the knitted pieces together.
