Simon The Snake

Simon The Snake amigurumi pattern is the perfect crochet pattern for reptile lovers.

Skill Level: Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and pictures to help you along the way. Simon The Snake is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Simon The Snake is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and approximately 19 inches long. Be aware that size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!
