Baby Snake is an original crochet pattern by June Gilbank.
A small but perfectly proportioned no-sew baby snake! The narrow body makes it easy to pose in a variety of realistic positions, and you can make your snakes as long or short as you want. Make a baby snake in a single colour, use a variegated yarn for easy colour patterning, or combine it with my Ultimate Stripes technique to make a tiny striped snake!
Baby Snake is designed to be a perfect miniature version of the snakes in my Temperature Snake and Snake Collection patterns (see photos, below, for size comparison), and you can also use all the striping ideas
from those patterns for your baby snakes.
Yarn: Small quantity of worsted weight yarn
Hook: E US/3.5mm
Size: approx 13-15" (33-38cm) long, but you can make yours as long as you want by adding more repeats to the body! (Your gauge and yarn choice will affect the finished size slightly.)
