green butterly, Papilio palinurus vlinder
Crochet pattern of the green tropical butterfly, the Papilio palinurus butterfly.
This beautiful green butterfly reminds me of a tropical butterfly. I only know this butterfly from pictures, photos and the zoo. This is not found in nature in the Netherlands. You can find it in South and Southeast Asia. Although this is not a Dutch butterfly, the bright green glossy colors appealed to me so much that I wanted to crochet it. It is a butterfly of the Pages family, just like the papilio machon. The wings of the butterfly appear beautifully green. If you place the frogs under a microscope, the scales on the wings are not green, but yellow and blue. Together it ensures that we see it as green.
