Crocheted draft snake

And now for something totally utilitarian… a draft snake that blocks the light from under our door!
Not all my crocheted projects are about being pretty or cute.
We have a big gap at the bottom of our bedroom door — so much so that the bright light wakes me up in the morning! I crocheted a draft snake to block the light.
I used some yarn someone gave me.
How funny, I just found a pattern for a draft snake online! This pattern is not the one I used, but it sure looks like the same thing!
I started crocheting a circle and then just kept to the same number of stitches so that the tube got longer and longer. When it was long enough, I decreased the stitches so that it looked like a snake.
It’s pretty boring but very functional. Next time I make one I think I need to make it a little thicker. If I don’t prop it all entirely against the gap, light does leak in.
And that is what is the exciting stuff going on in the Yee household these days.
