I used “Jeans” by YarnArt (55% cotton, 45% acrylic, 50g/160m) and 1.75 mm crochet
hook. The length of the snake depends on you – the more rounds you will work, the longer
the snake will be.
Y an

Work in continuous spiral unless otherwise stated. I recommend using a stitch marker for
each round/row (for example contrasting color thread).

Materials and tools:
• main color yarn;
• small amount of red and white color yarn for the scarf, hat and tongue;
• matching crochet hook;
• two buttons for the nostrils;
• false eyelashes (optional);
• wire for the wire frame;
• fabric tape to work up the wire;
• stuffing;
• tapestry needle.
