Pattern 6/12: Snake
This is an automated post. A new pattern will be added every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from July 7 to Aug 2 and they will be available until I return on Aug 9. I will also be able to answer comments and questions then.
A few notes: I suggest making the head last, so you can add ears, eyes, etc as you go. I places the eyes into the 12th and 16th stitches of the 7th row. I also weighed the bottom of the body with plastic pellets to keep them standing up, but you may want something heavier (like a pebble or magnet).
Red Heart Soft Yarn in Leaf, Pink, and Gold (I thought the pinks available for Red Heart Soft were too light, so I used Vanna’s Choice Baby in Pink Poodle. Honestly, I can’t even tell the difference! The Gold, on the other hand, is Red Heart Classic. There is a textural difference, butthe change is not visually apparent.)
