Here’s yet another addition to my collection of marine-themed stuffed toys—a crab!

The red crab was my first effort–and like most of my creations, I came up with the design organically as I was knitting. His blue and orange “descendants” sport a trimmer physique, which made them a little faster to make–always a plus when you want to be surrounded by lots of plushies!

I first created this little sidewinder as a gift for my friend Chris, who’s given him a home on her work desk. His adorable claws are functional, too! He holds up one of her name tags with his pinchers–what a nice guy, huh?
