After a couple of warm sunny days, it's raining again. It's raining a lot. That kind of weather you can expect snails to be happy with. May Milton The Slowpoke Snail enjoy.
It didn't want it to be 10x11". My space is limited and I have an addiction for that kind of cuties. So I used a E (3.5mm) hook and DK weight yarn (it's cheap acrylic, good enough for toys). Came out fine. Final size is 6x7", just perfect.
The pattern is from Crocheted Softies: 18 Adorable Animals from Around the World by Stacey Trock. I got this book for Christmas last year. Milton is the first of them I actually made, but all the patterns are adorable. One I especially like is Sherwin The Alpaca, sadly it supposes mastering loop stitch. My first attempt was an epic fail: more training needed. But Sherwin will happen one day, I promise.
