Flamingos are really popular this summer and I can’t resist them. I came up with the flamingo cup cozy because I wanted a cute cup cozy that was a little goofy at the same time. This is a beginner crochet pattern but you’ll need to know amigurumi basics like working in a continuous round and single crochet increasing to make the beak. So let’s cut the squawking and get down to making this cute flamingo cup cozy.
Pin it for later Save
The skills you’ll need in order to be able to complete this cozy are:
Chain, Single crochet, Half Double Crochet, Slip Stitch, Single Crochet Increase, working in the Back Loops Only (BLO) and colour changes. You’ll also need to know how to sew on some buttons and weave in your ends.
This cozy makes a great gift for others (and yourself! *wink*) and works up quick for markets, craft fairs and etsy shops.
