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 I originally made this to lay in front of a door to keep the draft out but my four boys have taken it over love to play with it.
