I used multi-coloured wool for my snake scarf, as I thought it looked similar to snakeskin, once knitted up. If you are feeling daring, you can use different colours to create stripes, and even put a rattle in itâ€™s tail, for your very own Rattlesnake scarf!
Cast on 20 stitches, and using the basic knit one, purl one, knit until you have achieved your perfect snake length.
When you have got to a length you are happy with, start decreasing your stitches on each side, to create a point.
Once you are left with your basic scarf, stitch up the sides from the tail end, as though you are making a tube.
Around 8 inches from the end, you need to stop, and stitch around the tube to gather in and make your snakeâ€™s â€˜neckâ€™.
Do the same at the end, so you are left with a pocket, to fill with toy stuffing. You can then stitch this up, remembering to attach the eyes.
Once the head is finished, make a tongue with the red felt, and tie a smart bow around his neck.
Et voila, Mr Snakey, ready to wrap around your neck.
