Boris the snail
*Boris the Snail* is the sixth in a series that makes up my Nature’s way blanket, and features a cheerful snail sat on some grass against an orange background. It can be knitted as a square in a blanket, used as a wash cloth, or the chart can be extracted and used as a motif for jumpers and other items. When knitted in DK weight yarn, the finished square measures 10 inches (25 cm); the snail chart without the border is 47 sts by 59 rows. Both coloured and symbol charts are provided.
Patterns for each of the intarsia squares are available individually at a cost of £1 each; the pattern for the whole blanket is also available from my Ravelry store and costs £5.
Note that in the sample, Boris is not completely central. This has been corrected in the final pattern.
**Tools**: 4 mm (US 6) needles; tapestry needle; bobbins for colour work; chart row marker (optional). For needles, size should be changed to match gauge (22 sts and 30 rows to 4 inches (10 cm)).
