Small amount of worsted weight yarn  (6 gm)
Size US G (4.5 mm) Crochet hook
Tapestry needle
Small amount of Polyfil (or something else to fill head)
Wiggle eyes (6 mm)
3 inch piece of red or pink yarn for tongue
Craft glue

Not important.

Ch = chain
Sc = single crochet
Hdc = half double crochet
Dc = double crochet
Dc dec = double crochet decrease
St = stitch
Sl st = slip stitch

  1. Read pattern through before beginning.
  2. If you work over the beginning tail as instructed there is only one tail to weave in.
  3. If you crochet loosely use a smaller hook.

Chain 60.

TAIL:  2 sc in  the 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc each of next 11 chains (to create corkscrew effect); single crochet in each ch to the last 8 chs.

Row 1 (right side):  Hdc in 2 chs, 2 dc dec over next 4 chs.  Hdc in 1 ch, 3 sc in last ch.   Working in the unused loop of starting ch and over beginning tail, hdc in next st, 2 dc dec over next 4 sts.  Hdc in next 2 sts, sl st in next st.

Row 2:  Ch 1, turn.  Skip 1 st, sc in next 13 head sts, sl st in next st.   Fasten off leaving about a 8 inch tail. 

Using the tapestry needle and 8 inch tail, whip stitch bottom of head closed by working through outside loops of row 2.  Insert a small amount of polyfil in head before closing completely. 

Fasten off and weave in end.


With yarn needle pull red yarn through the sts on bottom of the Snake’s head coming out near the center bottom.  Glue in place.    The easiest way to glue the tongue in place is by running the yarn in for about an inch under the head.  With about an inch protruding where you want the tongue, spread glue on half of it and pull inside the head. 

Glue on eyes.  

Trim the tongue after the glue is dry.
