Introduction: Stripey Snake

This stripey snake comes from a pattern in Zoe Mellor's book, Knitted Toys. I used some yarn that my aunt bought at a garage sale as well as a few new skeins to add some color. If I were to knit this again I would use thinner yarn. I deviated from the pattern a bit and made the stripes all different sizes instead of the same thickness. I originally made this to lay in front of a door to keep the draft out but my four boys have taken it over love to play with it.

I made this too! Used cotton Peaches and Cream yarn and knitted it in the round (I hate seaming) I had to start the head on two needles flat until I got past the cheeks then I changed over to knitting in the round. I did learn that it's a long way from one end to the other when try to stuff it (mine ended up 36 " long at least).

I also fooled around and managed to knit a forked tongue!

I hate real snakes, but this one is quite loveable. The bright colors are wonderful, and the tongue makes a whole package.

i think the pattern is better off with different width stripes, that was a good deviation on your part! its such a cute little critter with many function! (draft stopper and baby-sitter, haha)
