Amigurumi Crochet Snail Pattern

Crochet Toys - Snail

Etsy: Crochet Snail Pattern

Ravelry: Amigurumi Snail Pattern

Nice to see your projects and have a look at what the other crocheters have done. Tiny Amigurumi Snail

This is my very first amigurumi crochet toy pattern from years back, now with an updated version, DK weight included.

Crochet hook: 2,5mm
Size: approx. 10,5 cm/4,1 inc
Yarn: Ricorumi DK, DK weight /8 ply, on 10 pages! E
asy to follow pattern with lots of photos. I even included how to change the color, how to use poppers, and how to coil it up using the yarn, etc. 

I also made some videos: They can be found here: Amigurumi Video Tutorials

You can make these super cute snails including your own favorite colors. 

Why I like these crochet snails? I find them adorable, they are great toys for kids, they make nice gifts, and the end result gives such a great sense of achievement. Quite quick make as well. Also suitable for beginners - basic crochet stitches: single crochet, increasing and decreasing. 

You may want to add a little message while coiled up in one piece like seen here

Fun fact: it´s the same indoor plant I have had for a decade. Now slightly smaller. 

That´s an old photo of the year 2002 I believe :) 

And the process of making amigurumi toys

The process of making toys, actually designing them is a long process, but when you can hold it at the end and people get back you with their makes and positivity, it´s all worth it. And I will literally crochet for the rest of my life, hopefully. I was 6 years old when I understood that I like that world of toys, shapes, creativity, etc. My head is full of ideas, projects, etc. I see colors - I feel them. Crochet helps in so many ways. When your hands are working your brain is calmer. There´s so much noise around us, it helps to concentrate on yourself. 

There´s not much yarn needed for one crocheted snail. Cotton yarn is great, but why not to try with different yarns. As said. My pattern gives you at least two versions: how to work with fingering weight yarn (4 ply) and how to crochet your snail with DK weight yarn (8ply), Ricorumi DK here. 

Aren´t they just cute?

How can I see your makes with this pattern?
