View Full Version : Snail Shell Purse - Help!!
04-15-2005, 09:33 PM
Hi there! I've been trying to make the snail shell purse, and I've knitted all the pieces. No problem there. I am, however, having a lot of difficulty coiling it into a shell shape without it curling. I can't make it stay flat - tend to turn into a cone, really, which isn't that helpful for a purse!
Can anyone help??
Hmmm, I haven't tried this, but I wonder if wetting it and then shaping it and letting it dry might help? I saw that recommended in a rounded rug pattern I was thinking of doing.

Thanks! Good idea. I'll give that a try. :)

I'm having the same problem. It seems to prefer the cone shape rather than the flat shape. I'll try the water trick as well. Let me know how yours turns out. :??
