Normally if you were travelling through Australia you would avoid The Eastern Brown Snake (pseudonaja textilis). They are afterall, one of the deadliest snakes on the planet. Not so Barry and Larry. They are cute and cuddly amigurumi Eastern Browns. Ideal for the beginner they can be crocheted up in no time.
The exciting thing about amigurumi is that they are great stash busters! Use any leftover yarn but make sure you use a size smaller crochet hook than recommended.
Have fun with the features and use buttons, yarn, fabric or safety eyes. You will also need a tapestry needle for sewing and a small amount of stuffing.
Larry (the large snake) was made with two strands of cleckheaton country 8 ply and a size 5.00 crochet hook.
Barry (the small snake) was made with 1 strand of cleckheaton country 8 ply and a size 3.00 crochet hook.
