Zoe the Baby Flamingo Free Crochet Pattern


Who's ready to crochet the cutest Baby Flamingo ever?


Zoe is an old design of mine that deserved a new and improved look!

...and here she is, made with a soft and warm yarn, ready to entertain you little one!


I love revisiting old projects, and Zoe the baby flamingo was on the top of my list.

I reworked the pattern making the instructions clear and easy to follow.

I opted for the usual stuffing for the legs, instead of the metal wire, to keep the toy super safe even for little babies.


As you can see, the result is just adorable!

So, what are you waiting for?...grab your yarn and hook and crochet along with me!


 

Zoe the Baby Flamingo is made with Feels like Butta® yarn by LION BRAND YARN!

This velvety fiber yarn is incredibly soft and comes in a variety of pastel colors, perfect for baby's projects!

 


***You can purchase a downloadable AD-FREE PDF of the pattern with more than 40

step-by-step pictures, and tips to guide you through the making process on Etsy HERE !
