2005 knitting - Flamingo

Flamingo, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

This was a bit of fun. I'm not normally a fan of novelty yarns and my original plan involved Kidsilk Haze and chunky wool (something like Loopy and luscious). But then I saw these yarns and realised how feathery they were.

Pattern: the shoulder part is based on the one skein wonder. I then picked up stitches round the armholes and knitted the armholes in the round, increasing until they were sufficiently wing-like and then knitting until they were long enough.

Yarn: Sirdar Fizz and Stylecraft Sassy

Needles: 5mm circular, 15mm circular

Date: August 2005
