Fabulous flamingo

This was a project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time now. The pattern is from ‘Crocheted wild animals’ by Vanessa Mooncie. The feathers gave me quite a bit of grief, but luckily there’s always the crochet community to turn to and after someone noticed it looked like the crocodile stitch (which I had heard of, but never used) things went a lot smoother.
So here’s the result:

The first feather, I was so happy when I'd figured out how to make them

All feathers. Thankfully they're made in one go and I didn't have to sew them on one by one

Full flamingo, I love his looooong legs ❤

Now that this project is done, I might get time to work on a project for this year’s amigurumipatterns.net contest. I will keep you posted ^_~
