CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #24 Green Kangaroo Paw) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project

Introduction

365 Flower Bouquet Project – PATTERN DIRECTORY,  the landing page of my blog contains links to all the flower crochet patterns I've designed so far.

If you are familiar with Ravelry and you’d like to have a go at my patterns, join us at 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet on Ravelry.

Louise has a Green Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos viridus) plant in her garden. The flowers grow in compact heads of up to 15. They are light green, long tubes, covered with dense hairs and open at the tip with six claw-like structures. The plant’s name "Kangaroo Paw" is derived from this paw formation.
