I need your help ... I want to see if I can crochet up a hermit crab and some sea shells, but all I have found were pictures. Would anyone know of where any are?

I can't find anything on hermit crabs. (Too bad, I have some hermies!) I can't go to Blogs from work to see, but I see some mention of a crab here??

this is a cute pattern book. I have it and have made them. They aren't 3d per se but they come out really cute. I did the hermit crab, the starfish, the lobster and the crab.

Annie's Attic had a series of "crochet by the sea" patterns, including two crabs. The series is on eBay fairly frequently and there's an auction right now: http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem but it's already through the roof at over $35.......sometimes individual patterns from the series become available on eBay as well. That might be your best bet unless you've fallen in love with the entire group!

They are very nice patterns on ebay . They are abit pricey tho eh?But if you have been looking for em , it would be worth it . I'd like a set , but not at that price .
