The name Hydrangea contains many species and all have inflorescences with a special shape, color and texture. It fascinates me to look at the bottom of the bloom where green branches (and sometimes brown), slender and elegant create a sphere filled with flowers from the infinite nuances.
I have no clue about botany but I like to see, hear and know more about it with the crochet hook in my hands!
This hortensia is realized with Cable5 cotton yarn in three shades of pink with a touch of white. Many small flowers form the classic hydrangea panicle!
I have designed and crocheted these hydrangea crochet flowes for the italian magazine Mani di Fata for July 2014 issue.
