Since I have a real liking for nature’s most peculiar, weird, mysterious or misunderstood underdogs I decided to design some of them for anyone who wants to get to know these natural weirdo’s a little better!
The leafy seadragon is a colorful underwater animal, that lives off the coast of South and West Australia and is related to seahorses. These seadragons have long leafy protrusions that can change color and serve as camouflage: the leafy seadragon is meant to resemble floaty underwater greenery!
This model has been knitted with Lana Grossa Fine Degradé (02) yellow green/pale green for the body; the gradation of color creates a life-like effect. This leafy seadragon measures 28 cm from tail to snout. This is a medium knitting project, with some i-cord and round knitting. It asks for quite some crocheting, but instructions for this are included in the pattern.
