- * a lot of pictures
- * all needed explanation do crochet one yourself
Flora and Fine are mother and daughter, two gaudy flamingos that let the sun shine on their belly all day long, search all lakes for food together, or just romp around on the beach. No matter how, they enjoy their life to the fullest.
No particularly difficult crochet skills are required, but a bit of patience, as there are a lot of small parts.
The flamingos are with a wire frame and are therefore absolutely not suitable for children or even toddlers
According to the instructions, the flamingos can be crocheted in both sizes. There are lots of pictures and explanations on 15 pages.

For the big flamingo I used Schachenmayr Catania and the big hook, for the small one Schachenmayr Baby Smiles and the small hook.
The instructions are the same for both flamingos.
Gauge: 24 stitches * 22 rows = 10* 10 cm/ 4 4 inches (Schachenmayr Catania) Gauge: 40 stitches 37 rows = 10 * 10 cm/ 4 * 4 inches (Schachenmayr Baby Smiles)
The crochet flamingos will become about 30 cm/ 12 inches and 20 cm/ 8 inches tall.
The crochet flamingos may be sold, if you add the suitable link and a note: "Crochet after an instruction of masche-fuer-masche!".
The pattern may not be sold, gifted, passed on or otherwise be published, not even in a translated way.
