Stanley Snake is a super toy, but also a handy wrist rest on my desk. The snake is approximately 49 cm long (not including the tongue). All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles. Although the pattern is written for single pointed needles you could convert to knitting in the round if you know how to do so. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, knit stripes and sew seams.
- Instructions for making the snake and photos.
- A materials list and recommended yarns.
- The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.
- Measurements are in metric.
Materials you need at home:
- A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
