With the warm weather we have been having, my daughter wanted some summer themed hair ties. We decided to start with a crochet flamingo hair tie. The flamingo is one of her favorite birds, and perfect for summer. She loved the bright pink color and told me that it turned out perfect!
This project is pretty simple and doesn’t take much yarn. The body of the flamingo is made by stitching along both sides of the starting chain, then slip stitching together.
