Flamingo – a grad gift

flamingo4

Pattern: Flamingo by Susan B. Anderson
For: My sister, who just graduated
Time: finished the flamingo in 3 days, except for the legs. I had never knit an i-cord before and had some trouble with it. Just didn’t look pretty and too fluffy. In the end (2 months later, that is….) I got a spool from my aunt and finished the legs in no time! I knitted over 3 nails, and after knitting 6″, I picked up the stitches to continue on 2 DPN to make the feet.

The pattern asks for 2 pipe cleaners. I tried to use a straw, but that didn’t quite work. So I replaced it with a pipe cleaner.

Congrats on graduating, Marieke!! :)

    Cute! I like the colours.
    Aha, punniken (ik weet het Engelse woord niet :P) geeft sowieso een mooier resultaat dan een i-cord. Ik krijg meestal een soort ladder in het midden.

      Spool knitting is het Engelse woord :) Maar ik hoor mensen ook vaak praten over een loom, dus wat het verschil daarmee is?
