I am absolutely infatuated with these curly snakes. But please do not tell my husband – he HATES snakes.
Using a free pattern, by Becky Smith, these snakes knit up in a jiffy. The stitch pattern creates a natural curl to the snake that allows them to wind around many things (like the banister on my stairs). The edition of the bowler-style hat, turns what could be a creepy fellow in to a friendly playmate.
The pattern includes several different decoration options and I cannot wait to make more of these guys.
If you would like to knit a snake of your very own, the pattern can be found on Ravelry (here).
