Basic Skills Necessary:

  • All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles.
  • You will need to cast on, knit, purl, work increases and decreases.

Pattern Description:

TEENY FLAMINGO KNITTING PATTERNS
This teeny knitted flamingo has cocktail stick legs, and makes a fun cake topper for a pink themed party! Or you could use them to decorate potted plants. The sticks can be replaced after use if they get a bit grubby.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES:
Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the flamingo, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 2 pages and written in English.

SAFETY NOTE: I have used jewellery wire to strengthen the neck, and as the ends can be sharp this teeny flamingo should not be given as a toy to babies or young children.
