Flamingo – a grad gift
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!! :)
