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.
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.
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!
