Crochet Chameleon 


I thought I’d share my newest make, meet the crochet chameleon made using the fab pattern from Janice  Mooncie’s Crocheted Wild Animals , those of you who have come across this pattern already will know he’s a true chameleon as he can change colour by turning inside out to reveal his alternate colourway!

He is crocheted in two colourways , I used Sirdar Cotton Prints DK in shades 357 and 352

The yarn was lovely to work with, the hook slid easily and no annoying splitting and it makes a lovely smooth firm fabric, I am not the most experienced crocheter but managed the pattern with out too many problems , the only real piece of unravelling was when I worked a large piece with the wrong hook !

The instructions were pretty clear and he’s turned out great, although I did not check my tension as instructed so he may have differing proportions that he ought ! 

Have you made any of the animals in this book ? Which one should I make next ?

  1. This is absolutely awesome! What a cool crochet pattern that it builds in the reversibility! I’ve only ever crocheted blankets or scarves, but you’ve inspired me to look into that book and the animals. I’ve got a new nephew or niece on the way, and this would be a cute gift! (or maybe I’ll just keep it for myself 😉 )
