Let’s make the cutest crocheted flamingo! Inspired by all the animals I’ve created for my two Animal Adventure books, I knew I needed to make something bright and colorful. This flamingo is perfect on it’s own but also goes great with any of the animals from those books I mentioned. I had a lot of fun coming up with this design and trying a couple new techniques to achieve the most adorable friend!

This flamingo is easy to make and includes step-by-step photos and directions to help you along as you make it.
