COBRA

This is a request from an Etsy customer of mine.  I made her cobra with metallic black and metallic pewter gray yarn that she requested it to be made in.  The cobra can be made in any color.  The cobra that my Etsy customer requested had a three-foot-long tail.  When you get to the HOOD portion of the COBRA, I have included the graphs of both sides of the HOOD and the “crochetese” of the HOOD.

Worsted Weight Yarn:  Black, pewter gray, yellow, perfect pink, baby pink, and white.

Tapestry needle
Floral wire (optional)
