Slow pokes

I’ve been wanting to make one of these guys for awhile now, but not knowing how to crochet was a major hangup. But since they are soooo very cute, I finally took the time to actually sit down, read some directions (*gasp*), and figure it out. Seeing as I learned from a random website, I really can’t say if I’m crocheting correctly or not (my biggest question is what is the right side? Did I make these inside out? Can anyone who knows tell from these pictures?), but it seemed to work okay.



My first attempt turned out to be a huge man eating snail. More scary than cute. The only crochet hook I owned was a size bigger than the recommended, but seriously, this is four times the suggested size. I probably also used fatter yarn….

Although the concept of a man eating snail is awesome, I was still going for more cute than awesome, so I went and bought another crochet hook (I now own two!).



More like it, yes? He’s still larger than called for, but still very cute.
