Thank you! It just struck me that a snail needs a spiral LOL

Hey! Can you tell me if there is a pattern for this crochet version.

I haven't done a pattern up. A rough guide is to make a spiral in 2 colours for most of the distance you need. I stoped shaping for the last row, I think. Join the two circles across the top to suit the tea pot and under the handle. The eye stalks are just dc rectangles with some short rwos to make them wider at one short edge. Fold in half and join. Eye is just two circles - eye is 12 tr (dc in US) in a ring, then 2 tr in each. I think the back of the eye was the same, then with 2 rows of dc (sc US). Sit the eye in the back & join with a row of DC. I used a pipe cleaner folded in three to give the stalk some rigidity. I've added a section across the top of the spout just with increasing sized stitches to get the curl up on the shell there.

Ok this might seem silly, but I am having real trouble with this pattern. I could use some help, I have done the first lot of stitches in both colours, then it loses me. Sorry if that sounds stupid
