Materials You Will Need

Want to make a finished snail exactly like me? Use this yarn and colors I listed below, you can find this kind of 4-ply yarn and buy it online easily on ETSY. I use these colors: sand, teal, light blue, brown, black, white, pink, yellow, and blue. Try with your favorite colors if you like. I’m using hook size 2.3 mm and Hamanaka is one of my favorite brands, find Hamanaka hook on ETSY.
