One Christmas crochet request fulfilled...
Now, where to position the eyes...
this (free!) pattern for the head and body but with my own random stripes and a more gradual decrease in girth towards the tail. For the tongue I did something like ch15, 1 ss in 2nd ch from hook, 1 ss in next 5 ch, ch7, 1 ss in 2nd ch from hook, ss to end, turn and ss back up to beginning of fork, fasten off. For the cream part of the eyes I did ch4, join with ss, ch2, (UK)tr into ring x14, join with ss, fasten off.
Photo shoot time...
If you've been paying attention you'll have noticed I made two tongues and four eyes. Why? Because once A heard N was getting a snake made she decided she'd like one too. Here are the colours she has chosen:-
ooo 'eck I thought it was a golf club cover at first! The snake is much better, well done, love it! x
That is really cool - bound to become a family heirloom.
I still have a colourful clown my mother-in-law knitted for my son when he was a toddler.
I'd be thrilled to unwrap that on Christmas day - what a fantastic snake, I love it and I'm sure N will too. Great job.
MR Snake is adorable, I believe Miss Snake will be too. Hugs to you,
Gorgeous :) He reminds me of Sid who spent large parts of summer in our garden!!
I thought golf club cover as well, he's great!!
I suspect if I showed this to my N, he'd immediately want one too (actually his grandfather bought him that snake from Ikea a few years ago). Instead he's getting a knitted reindeer!
Your snake is great, wouldn't mind it myself ;-)
what a beseeching little expression your snake has. it's like he's saying, "cuddle me!"
oh that is one cute snake!
Mr Snake looks great ... I'm cutting it fine too. I've got a reindeer finished but the green monkey is pushing it !
Wow that's great! And so different too. Xxx
I was thinking: Light bulb hat? Water bottle cover? Even the forked tongues didn't clue me in - had to see the completed project. It's amazing what a difference the eye placement can make.
Can't wait to see A's girly-coloured snake!
It's lovely! I really like it. Lucky N, and it's extra special since you made it yourself. Good luck completing the second one for A - I am also in the midst of some frantic last minute hooking... x
