Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting
  • Hand sewing (basic)

Pattern Description:

This is a darling snake, very colorful...perfect for beginner felters, or those who would like to use up those odds and ends!

I first created this pattern as a way to test which of the yarns (unlabeled), in my stash, were feltable! Since it only uses a total of 42 yards (6 of each color), it is a great stashbuster!
This pattern is also great for a beginner!

Felting is optional. (The last photo shows the snake unfelted.)
Easy felting instructions are given.

Gauge for pattern: Not crucial

  • About 42 Yards Worsted Weight Wool (not superwash, if you intend to felt)
