The darling snake scarf I made for the Lion Brand Slideshow Challenge, out of 100% wool. Risk of felting, yes, but I like the fuzzy nature of the real wool. Wool-ease could easily be substituted, but I don't think it would be as nice.
The pattern is by Kris Percival, "wiggly worm scarf" though i think it resembles a snake much more closely. It's a quick knit and I just love it to pieces. It appears in many of Kris' books/kits, including the knit knack kit and knitting pretty.
He knit up in a jiffy on size 8 straight knitting needles, and the stockingette made him curl up like a dream.
