Camo Snakes and sheep

I have been crocheting a snake for a Christmas present. Last year I was crocheting toys Christmas Eve, so I'm trying to finish a little earlier this year.


The snake pattern is from Yarncat.com, I altered it slightly by using child safe eyes, (with washers on the backs, I picked out cat eyes and because the puplis were more snake-like), I also made a red felt forked tongue instead of a crocheted black one. I think he turned out very cute.


001 OOOO I'm scary and ready to strike, I'm long enough to put around your neck at 46 inches.


007 You can see my tongue here.



Go visit Yarncat.com! There are lots of free patterns. I like the baby snake pattern (even if you don't like snakes you will like these), Chenille bear pattern and fun things like this bug scrubber, road tested by truckers (and good for the environment) I think this would be a cute stocking stuffer.


Right now I am in a sheep ornament obsession! 005

I have plans to make, all colors of sheep and turn them into ornaments, I think this one needs googley eyes! 006


Pattern from Chicks with Sticks Guide to Crochet, more on the sheep later.

All done! First of the flock!


May your needles fly as fast as dragonflies!

  1. Here's a practical use for the snake: make a tube from muslin and fill it with rice or cat litter or something small like that. Use it to 'stuff' the snake. And then use the snake as a draft stopper for the door. I make these from home dec fabric and clay cat litter. People love 'em especially in an older home.

    I have one window that does not close properly because the installer put it in a bit slanted. I have to use one of these draft stoppers in that window.

  2. LOL! Too funny! I think the sheep is my favorite though. Too bad I'm miserable at crocheting.
