Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic crochet stitches, FPdc

Pattern Description:

This design is dedicated to the most mysterious and powerful animal on planet earth, The Cobra. If you look closely enough, this design looks like a cobra's head with hood expanded as if it is ready to strike.

In Indian mythology, a cobra is wound around God Shiva's neck so that he doesn't swallow the poison that he drunk during the Manthan. God Vishnu sits on a seven headed cobra. There is even a festival celebrated in India called "Naag Panchmi".

Apart from mythology, I've always been fascinated with this animal mainly due to the fact that I have had cobra in my dreams millions of time. So, subconsciously, I created a design that would fit around the neck just like Shiva.

If you love cowls & a lot of texture, this design is just for you. Enjoy!!!
