Crochet Snake Hat

This is another book my daughter bought me from Amazon.
It really is Kooky too.
I liked the snake hat below apart from having too many snakes.
So I came up with my own version with a little help from the book.
I used the pattern for the large snake and it's head with a few minor alterations.

My yarn is never the same as the pattern requires so I always have to improvise. Mainly because I can't quite understand the ply refered to (US sizing) and also I buy lots of left over yarn from other peoples stash from trash and treasure. For a very cheap price mind you.

So here is my snake hat. Ssssssss.

He's spotted you and is on the turn! Look out!

I found your blog from your visit to mine. I love your work! I think your snake hat looks much better than the one in the pattern book! You could probably sell that design. I wonder if kids would go for creepy version of it on Halloween? Sandy
