Crochet Chameleon

Last year we went on vacation to Lanzarote at the Canary Islands. My parents live there, so it wasn't the first time we went there. To be honest, we have seen almost everything a man can see there, so going to Lanzarote is just for family matters. But when we are there, we always go to Rancho Texas, the zoo. They're still expanding, zo there's always something new to see. Last year they had chameleons. I just love chameleons! Such extraordinary animals, with their rolled up tongue, their skin changing in all sorts of colors and their eyes rolling independently from each other.

Yep, this is the one.

This week I was in a craft store and found a little book with crochet patterns. One of the patterns was a chameleon and just for that pattern I bought the book (by Christel Krukkert, only in Dutch) and some yarn and started crocheting as soon as I was home. Here's the finished chameleon.


And, I found this beautiful, beautiful flower in my backyard!!

Well, not entirely a coincident, because I planted it myself, but that was years ago and it has never bloomed before!


  1. Super cool crochet chameleon!

  2. So much fun, great to reconnect on Craft schooling sunday! And truthfully having a place to go for vacation where there is no pressure to sight see can be a wonderful thing too!

  3. thank you very much for joining in and making our Bowdabra Crafty Saturday Showcase, we will look forward to seeing your post next Saturday.
    Warm Regards,

  8. That chameleon is adorable!! He reminds me of Pascal from Tangled

  9. I was just thinking reminds me of Tangled too! Very cute, great job!

  10. Just WOW! I love this. I've done a little knitting (never any crochet) and I find it challenging. I'm so impressed that you were able to make this. Thank you for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty with us this week!
