Knitted Stripy Snake - Ta Dah!!

Hello!  Here is something I finished in December, for my nephew for Christmas...

A huge long snake!!  I am sooo pleased with it!

He's got two buttons for each eye, and a red felt tongue.  Around his neck is a knitted red bow-tie... what a smart snake!

And here is the star picture of the snake.... with the little angel....!!

I love that picture!  Gorgeous!

That gives a better idea of the size.  And this shows it off even more, around my brother's neck...

And... oh no!!  Maybe Sammy isn't such a nice snake after all... he's attacking my Dad!!!

(I wonder how many Christmas drinks had been consumed at that point?!?!  We know how to have fun with craft!!)

By the way, thanks for the comments on my Zebra Hat - I am working on writing the pattern for it!


  1. Awww I love Sammy the Snake. Your nephew has been getting loads of lovely presents - what a great Aunty!

  2. Sammy is such a nice gift. I would love to figure out how to crochet a Sammy of my own.

  3. Hehehe!
    This made me chuckle!!
    LOVE that snake- what a perfect gift.

  4. Sammy the Snake is fab and he's clearly already spread lots of his smart bow tie too!
    Hope you have a great week,
    Susan x

  5. Oh nooooo is your dad ok??? Hahaha fun x-mas....

    Anyway the snake is lovely and so much bigger than I thought. Nice to have a big snuggly friend when you are little.


  6. That snake is adorable! And it's knitted so seamlessly. I always manage to get a couple of tight stitches in there.

    Sammy reminds me of my old public library, where there was a massive fabric snake, like 30 feet long, and my favourite thing to do was mush it into a comfortable position, climb in, and read a book.

  7. This is so great! I love how big it is, and it's fun for the whole family, too. Awesome. :)

  8. Your knitting is beautiful ... so even and perfect and I love that snake. But, I must not be distracted right now!

  9. I love Sammy - he has such character! Lovely colours too

  10. What a cute snake! Looks like it's not only the little one who enjoys playing with this lovely blue reptile . Lol

  11. Great idea, but you have to make it about two times smaller than mine, I suppose, and stuff it with something a bit heavier. If you have been interested just click EvolutionWriters. I once made a tiny snake out of mum's quiting leftovers and filled it with cherry pits, I think a large one could work as a draft excluder or even a door stopper, but would you be able to eat such a lot of cherries?

  12. So sweet! I am interested in knitting one like this - do you have or know where I can find a pattern please?

    1. Sorry for the late reply. I don't have a pattern - I just knitted stockinette stitch stripes and then sewed the two sides together to make the tube. There may be patterns online for something similar!
