Delicious local brews are part of what makes the Portland food scene so vibrant, and it all happens because of the noble hop flower. From the bushy vines of Oregon’s hops fields to the plucky plants of the backyard brewer, the springy green of these little flowers brightens up even the greyest days. Crocheted crocodile stitch mimics the hops’ layered leaves -- get your growlers ready for a garden party with this fun cozy!
