My three year old son recently took a liking to keeping pet snails. Snails do NOT make the greatest pets! They are icky, sticky and can easily escape. Believe me they can escape fairly quickly if not watched closely. I fortunately found the escapee snail upon our stand up heater. Unfortunately though the snail did not last long as my son accidentally stomped upon it the next day. After Swirly number 2 was lost in similar tragic circumstances I decided "no more pet snails!" Instead, I made my son, an Amigurumi pet snail. One that can't escape, it doesn't make icky, sticky trails and it is far more robust under the rough, tumble play of a three year old. So here he is, "Swirly the Unbreakable", an Amigurumi Crochet Pattern.
This is an easy pattern that can be made in a day.
Tip- Use self striping yarn on the shell to create different effects! You can buy this pattern at my Ravelry Store (link on BUY button below) or my Etsy store I heart the hook
