This snake is knitted using short rows so he always stays in a twirly spiral shape. If you have never worked short rows in knitting before, instructions are included in the pattern, and I also have a free tutorial on my website to help you at

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the snake, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques (including how to work short rows), a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes and sew seams.


  • A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
  • DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); less than a 100g skein per colour
  • Toy filling
  • Buttons for eyes
