Hold the shell upside down and slip stitch with the body color in the left corner of one short side. Sc along the following long, short and long side again. Plase leave out the last short side, because the neck will be sewn on this side later. Don’t cut the thread, crochet into the BLO as follows:

5 tch, slst, (3 ch, slst, 5 ch, slst)* until the end of the sc

End with a slst, cut the thread about 100cm long. You can use this thread to sew on the shell into the body and neck later.

Tip: For better result, crochet the ch loosely. Use a hook size larger, if it’s too difficult for you.

Rnd 13-32. 18sc (20 rows)
Hold the shell over the 20 rows and test, if the shell is as long as the 20 rows. You may have to crochet 1-2 rows more or less, because here, the shell will be sewn on later. Don’t stuff and crochet together with 9sc. This round should be parallel to round 10. Don’t cut the thread, you will crochet the neck and head directly after the body.

Finishing

Sew the shell with help of the flower BLO onto the body. Stuff the shell slightly and from it so it doesn’t look bulky. Now you can place the rattle. Don’t cut the thread, you also have to sew the neck onto the shell. Test, weather the snail is stable. Then cut the thread and hide it.

You can embroider snail pretty face with a black and white thread. The eyes are embroidered over row 51 to row 54, the eyebrows are embroidered across row 57 to row 55 over 3 stitches. Embroider the nose row 51 over 2 stitches with the color of the body. Apply some blush underneath the eyes with a brush.

Congratulations, you have completed the amigurumi snail pattern.
