Red Tailed Boa Constrictor

Updated: Jan 25, 2019

Difficulty: Intermediate ✦✦✦✧✧

Here is a free crochet pattern for a red-tailed boa constrictor (snake) that tries to stay as true to the size and coloring of the real snake as possible.


I recently decided that I wanted to make a new toy for my son. He is at a phase where he loves to grasp an object in each hand and stretch it as wide as his arms (or the object) will allow. My husband suggested making a snake that could either coil up or stretch depending on how it is handled.

I opened up my favorite book of snake images, "Serpentine" by Mark Laita, and was immediately drawn to the dramatic color transitions of the red-tailed boa constrictor. Further in the book, there is also an image of a boa skeleton that curls back and forth is a most dramatic fashion. These were the inspiration for this snake.

I used a 3.75mm (F) hook with light worsted weight yarn (Knit Picks Mighty Stitch). I used less than 1 skein (200 yds) of each color (white, maroon, and black). The snake measures about 66 inches when stretched out and about 2 inches diameter at its widest point.

Special Stitches:



Invisible Decrease (sc2tog): Insert your hook in the first stitch and pull up a loop. Insert your hook in the second stitch and pull up a loop. Pull that same loop through both loops on the hook.




Reverse sc: Insert your hook in the stitch from back to front and pull up a loop. Then, pull a loop through both loops on the hook.



In white: Row 1:  ch 3, sc in the second ch from the hook, 3 sc in the next st, working in the same ch as the first sc: 2 sc in the same ch.       This makes a slight oval shape with 6 sc around the initial 2 chains (3 in each ch). Work in a spiral from here and throughout.

Row 2:  sc in each st around. (6 sts) Row 3:  [sc 2, 2 sc in the next st] twice. (8 sts) Row 4:  [sc 3, 2 sc in the next st] twice. (10 sts) Row 5:  [sc 3, 2 sc in the next st, sc] twice. (12 sts) Row 6:  [sc 3, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sc] twice. (16 sts) Row 7:  [sc 4, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sc 2] twice. (20 sts) Row 8:  sc in each st around. (20 sts) Row 9:  [sc 5, 2 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sc 3] twice. (24 sts) Row 10:  sc in each st around. (24 sts) Row 11:  sc in each st around. (24 sts) Row 12:  sc in each st around. (24 sts) Row 13:  [sc 4, (sc2tog) 3 times, sc 2] twice. (18 sts) Row 14:  [sc 3, sc2tog, sc, sc2tog, sc] twice. (14 sts) Rows 15-20:  sc in each st around. (14 sts) Rows 21-27:  sc 3, hdc, (hdc2tog) twice, hdc, sc 3, 2 sc in each of next 2 sts. (14 sts)       Make sure to pull the hdc-decreases tight to prevent a large hole from appearing when you stuff the neck. If a gap does appear, you can weave a piece of yarn (over, under) through the stitches. - Sl st 1. Tie off.
