Tempest The Temperature Snake

Tempest The Temperature Snake

 

This snake is a larger version of my Snek Hat snake. Use the charts at the end to track the daily temps in your area and assign them a color. {These charts were shared with the Fiber Magick Confidential Group by one of our members, April Wells.} Here in South Florida I started at 50 degrees and changed color every 5 degrees so I could get some variation. If you are in a colder climate you may want to start lower and change color less often. It’s your snake. Have fun.

 

You will need:

Yarn in a neutral color for head, tail, and one row between the days.

Yarn in a variety of colors to match your color chart.

Good time to clean up all that unused yarn in the stash.

Crochet to match the yarn

Keeping to one yarn weight and one hook size would be ideal.

Lots of stuffing

Got old throw pillows? Time to upcycle

Scissors

Stitch Marker

20mm Safety eyes

 

You Will Use:

Ch – Chain Stitch

Sc – Single Crochet

Sc inc – Single Crochet Increase

Sc Dec – Single Crochet Decrease
