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.

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.

    1. What yarn are you using? Also, be sure to loosely stuff the body. Hope that helps!
