Snails and slugs

Terri Reinhart

These are a perfect use for all the leftover bits of sock yarn.  I found a pattern for these to be knit in the round on double pointed needles, however, that sounded like torture to me.  I adapted the pattern to be knit on two needles.

Slug:

On size 0 or 1 needles, cast on 4 sts.

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Purl

Row 3: Knit, inc 1 in 1st and 3rd stitches (6 stitches)

Row 4: Purl

Row 5: Knit, inc 1 in 1st and 4th stitches (8 stitches)

Continue knitting and purling till slug measures approximately 1 ½ inches long.

Pull yarn through needle and stitch opening, stuffing a tiny ball of wool in the end to create a head.

Finger knit for about 1 ¼” for horns. Pull through head and weave ends back through horns, losing the yarn in the body. Trim end of yarn.

Snail Shell (to go on slug):

On size 0 or 1 needles, cast on 12 sts.

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Purl

Row 3: Knit, inc 1 in 1st and last stitches (14 stitches)

Row 4: Purl

Row 5: Knit, inc 1 in 1st and last stitches (16 stitches)

Row 6: Purl

Continue knitting and purling rows without increasing for four more rows.

Row 11: Knit 2 together, knit 2 together, knit till last four stitches, knit two together, knit two together

Continue knitting and purling rows till the entire shell measures approximately 3 inches. Pull yarn through stitches and sew opening, stuffing lightly as you go. Twist into tight spiral and sew together. Sew to slug body.
