Knitting Pattern for Diamondback Rattlesnake

A while back I was challenged to make the Diamondback Rattlesnake. This snake was the result. I posted a photo of him on Ravelry and many people asked for the pattern.

To make this snake you have to be able to work intarsia and stranded colorwork. The stranded colorwork is done with all three colors. An easier alternative could be stranded colorwork in two colors and then add duplicate stitch for the third color. The snake is knitted flat, start at the tail’s end, work to its head, and continue with the bottom part. Rattle is added at the end.

You will need approximately 1 ball of each medium worsted yarn in brown, grey, off white for the top part of the snake and off white yarn with speckles for the bottom part. The pattern contains two charts, one for the upper body and second for the head, as well as written instruction.

The knitting pattern for the snake is available on Ravelry or could be purchased by clicking on this button.

Thank you for visiting.
