When I think of an animal mascot of the summer, I picture a flamingo. The image of that distinctive pink plumage and sassy bent leg just screams tropical elegance.

This flamingo amigurumi pattern is fairly simple but there is a neat shaping trick that I used for the bend of the neck. To direct the neck to bend forward, you place an increase at the beginning and end of the round, and place two decreases next to each other in the middle of the round.
