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).

Materials:

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.)

3.0mm crochet hook

Scissors, Yarn Needle, Safety Eyes

Pattern:

The Basic Body and Head patterns are available here.

Snake Tongue:

In Leaf:

Ch 6, 2 slst, ch 3, 5 slst. (The first two go into the second chain, the last three, into the first chain.) Ch 1, cut tail, etc.

Snake Tail:

Beginning with a Magic Loop, ch 2. (The loop counts as the first ch.)

Round 1 – 4 sc into the first ch. (4)

Round 2 – *1 sc, 1 inc* x 2 (6)

Round 3 – *1 sc* x 6 (6)

Round 4 – *1 sc, 1 inc* x 3 (9)

Round 5 – *1 sc* x 9 (9)

End with a slst in the next stitch for a more even appearance.  Cut the yarn and pull the tail through.  Use tail to seam to head.
