Crochet Snake Pattern

Summer is a good season to whip up some quick amigurumi projects. These crocheted snakes are simple to make and fun for the kids to play with! I made them with one of my favorite brands of yarn: Red Heart with Love. I love the soft texture of the yarn and vibrant colors. The variegated colors are perfect for a snake body.

Crochet Snake Pattern
Size: 20″ long (from head to tail), 1.5″ wide body, 2″ wide head

Starting with your variegated yarn…

Magic ring, chain 1, make 4 SC in magic ring, continue to SC in rounds (use stitch marker if needed)

Round 2: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around (6 SC)
Round 3-5: SC in each stitch around (6 SC)
Round 6: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2, repeat around (8 SC)
be sure to stuff with poly-fil as you go!
Round 7-9: SC in each stitch around (8 SC)
Round 10: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 3, repeat around (10 SC)
Round 11-13: SC in each stitch around (10 SC)
Round 14: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 4, repeat around (12 SC)
Round 15-17: SC in each stitch around (12 SC)
Round 18: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 5, repeat around (14 SC)
Round 19-69: SC in each stitch around (14 SC) 
I singled crocheted 50 continuous rounds but you can make your snake as long or short as you like.
change to solid color yarn… 
Round 70: SC in each stitch around (14 SC)
Round 71: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 6, repeat around (16 SC)
Round 72: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 7, repeat around (18 SC)
Round 73: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 8, repeat around (20 SC)
Round 74-75: SC in each stitch around (20 SC)
Round 76: SC Decrease, SC in next 8, repeat around
Round 77: SC in each stitch around (18 SC)
Round 78: SC Decrease, SC in next 7, repeat around
Round 79: SC in each stitch around (16 SC)
Stop here to add safety eyes and stuff
Round 80: SC Decrease, SC in next 6, repeat around
Round 81: SC in each stitch around (14 SC)
At this point you want to SC Decrease until closed, BUT right before its completely closed, cut a small tongue out of felt and sew the end shut with the tongue sticking out of it.

      Vid andra jämna födelsedagar åkte mina föräldrar bort på själva födelsedagen (ja de talade förstås om det för de närmaste). Valet stod mellan att ha öppet hus eller resa bort. I Stockholm. Som ju alltså inte kan kallas för en liten ort.

      Looking forward to Terry Minsky’s show. The same creator as one of the great, underrated sitcoms of the last 10 years, “Less than Perfect.” And with Anne Meara too? Love her!

    This is so perfect considering I live in Alaska and I had never seen a snake (in person) until this June when I went to Georgia to visit family. While I was there a 4 year old little girl saw me crocheting something and asked if I could make a snake. I'm going to make one of these and send it to her!

    I love this snake pattern! I am having a hard time getting it going though. I understand the magic ring and all, but the first couple of rounds are kicking my behind (maybe it is just the small size of it). Do you by chance have a video clip of this snake being made?
