Crochet ‘snake bite’ photo prop snake hat.
This pattern is for a novelty photo prop snake hat.
Care should be taken if baby is wearing it for anything other than a photo shoot as the long tail could pose a risk.

Two different finishes for the head are provided as shown in the pictures above.
YOU WILL NEED 300 m double knitting (8-ply) yarn, oddments of black and white yarn for eyes and fangs, a 3.50mm hook and a needle for neatening ends.
