The original snake was created as my way to respond to a challenge I received a while ago. It is not an easy project.
To make this snake you have to be able to work intarsia and stranded colorwork. The stranded colorwork is done with all three colors. An easier alternative could be stranded colorwork in two colors and then add duplicate stitch for the third color.
The snake is knitted flat, start at the tail’s end, work to its head, and continue with the bottom part. Rattle is added at the end.
You will need approximately 1 ball of each medium worsted yarn in brown, grey, off white for the top part of the snake and off white yarn with speckles for the bottom part.
The pattern contains two charts, one for the upper body ad second for the head, as well as written instruction.
