Slithery Snake



Pattern: Slithery Snake from Knitted Toys by Zoe Mellor.
Yarn: Odd bits of Wool-Ease (green and natural) and Red Heart (blue)
Needles: Sz 8 Clover bamboo circulars
Dates: early July-July 14
For: The Neph who turned 4 on Saturday!
Mods: Didn't do as many colors, went with a larger gauge yarn and needle, didn't follow the pattern exactly (as I seemingly can't read), was a touch shorter than the finished measurements.
Thoughts: Cute! Went quickly, though I was disappointed not to use up more stash yarn. Must find more uses for it.

Also: There is a minor error in the pattern - it calls for you to cast on 12 stitches, and then to increase in the first row to 12 stitches. You should cast on 8 instead.

Oh how neat! What a fun toy and it seems a good way to use little bits of color.

Hi. I LOVE it. I was wondering where you got the pattern from or if you made it. Im VERY obsessed with snakes so i would like the pattern. I have neon green, neon red and Neon blue wool to use...

Thanks
