Sis the Snake



     This is Sis, the friendly little snake. He likes to coil (since snakes don't cuddle =>), and loves making friends.




Supplies:
     5.00 mm crochet hook
     blue worsted weight yarn
     white worsted weight yarn
     yarn to stitch eyes
     scissors
     stuffing material
     yarn needle

Abbreviations Used:
     ch --- chain
     sc --- single-crochet
     st/sts --- stitch/stitches
     sc2tog --- single-crochet 2 stitches together

Notes:
     --- You could use safety eyes or buttons rather than sewing eyes onto the Snakes face.
