Elegant, slender and really rather pink - say hello to Chloe and Beau, The Flamingos! Both flamingos are made using the same pattern, but with different yarn and hook size (see below).

The instructions are written in US crochet terms, with step by step photos detailing how to make the pieces and sew together the toy. The fluffy flamingo fur is created with a single thread of textured yarn hidden under the stitches over the body (more details on the technique are here:, and uses different pink colours for different elements, so there is a subtle colour shift behind the fur. 

When made with DK weight yarn and 3.50mm hook the finished flamingo will measure about 50cm long from top of the neck to feet. When made with 4-ply weight yarn and 2.50mm hook she is 39cm long.
