Hello again from the Isle of Wight. Real life and Christmas preparations got in the way of crocheting for a week or so but I’ve managed to find the time to write up another pattern in my #lockdownamichallenge …..may I introduce to you my flamboyant Flamingo!
He’s made with yarn from the Aldi Amigurumi Yarn Box that is the basis of my challenge to see how many different #mycrochetchums I can design and create from the whole box. If you’d like to have a go at making my Flamingo, you can find the free amigurumi pattern here.
The yarn is DK weight - so you can use up yarn already in your stash on any of the #lockdownamichallenge patterns - I do recommend Cotton though as it's usually firm enough to give your ami a good structure and stop them being floppy!
This is the second Flamingo I’ve designed - I was lucky enough to have a different, larger one called Frankie commissioned by Crochet Now magazine - he appeared in the September issue (Issue 60) of the magazine. The Crochet Now Editor, Jenny, was kind enough to take a chance on me as a newbie, unpublished designer and I’m so grateful to her for doing so as it gave me the confidence to start letting #mycrochetchums loose on the world!
The Crochet Now magazine and website are packed with great patterns and inspiration not to mention some lovely giveaways - I recommend you check them out.
Flamingo is the fourth of the #mycrochetchums I’ve come up with so far - here he is with the rest of the gang - you can find the free amigurumi patterns for all of them here.
The next of #mycrochetchums off the hook will be making their entrance in the New Year - I hope you all have a Happy, Hooky (and Safe) Christmas and get lots of time to crochet!
