What you need to know

Make a little one Val Pierces cute and colourful friend

Forget slimy snails at the bottom of the garden - Basil is one fellow you'll definitely want to stick around! A cuddly pal made using a combination of soft DK and textured yarns, kids won't be able to resist this merry little mollusc and, provided everything is sewn on nice and securely, he's safe for small children, too. Some parts of him are crocheted instead of knitted - if you've never crocheted before, make sure you read our tips panel for more.
