This item is a pdf format pattern, not the actual crocheted items. BUT you can make the snails and butterflies yourself, by the piles, they are addictive, fun, and cheerful! I remember drawing stacks and stacks of snails and their butterfly cohorts when I was a kid in the 70's; this little guy is a nod to those innocent times.

You will need a size 4 steel thread crochet hook, crochet thread or fashion crochet thread, and perhaps some fabric stiffener if you wish.

You'll need to know chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet ,and double triple crochet. (You can find links to some great video showing these stitches on my website or on youtube).

You'll get your downloads right at checkout: the first pdf file is the snail ornament, and the second one is a bonus "thank you" pattern! As always, I offer a money-back guarantee of your satisfaction and will refund your money via paypal if you're not happy, no questions asked!

The snails work up to approximately 2 1/4" inches long if you use fashion crochet thread, about 2" long for the baby version; the butterflies are tiny little miniatures which turn out about an inch wide when made with crochet thread.

Convo me if you have any questions! There is a key to abbreviations included, several photos, two diagrams, and of course the crochet instructions.I do offer a money-back guarantee of your satisfaction, simply let me know and I will refund your money cheerfully via paypal.

Feel free to make and sell this design, just pass along credit or a link. And please, do not pass along my pattern, it is my own copyrighted design.
