The Ouroboros, or snake swallowing its tail, is an ancient symbol found in many cultures. It represents eternity, the infinite, and the cycle of life, death and rebirth.

This snake is a bit more whimsical and is here to help you keep your coffee hot, your beer cold, and your hand dry and just the right temperature.

The pattern contains both charted and written instructions. Both lace and cable stitches are used to create a rich texture.
