A collaboration between Elizabeth Lovick and Catriona Gunn Catdownunder

Kangaroos, Koalas and Kookaburras symbolise Australia. All have suffered greatly in the recent fires. Show your support for the rescue efforts by making a beanie for yourself or your friends.
All proceeds of the sale of this pattern will go to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, https://kangarooislandwildlifepark.com/ to help animals, people and the land recover from the fires which have devastated a third of Kangaroo Island. If you wish to donate more, their donation page is https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-save-kangaroo-islands-koa...
