Toddler Snake Scarf
This was designed so someone (like me), who hates the idea of knitting what is essentially a 3-foot+ long tube wouldn’t have to. The scarf is knit flat, with a mixture of garter and st st. The st st rolls up nicely and creates the effect without actually having to knit a tube. The pattern has been rewritten and test-knit, and includes charts for the head and tail as well as a template for the tongue.
