If you’ve never heard a flamingo make a noise before, it might surprise you that these beautiful creatures’ voices don’t quite fit their appearance. They don’t have the voice of a songbird. They honk. A lot.
Even if their song isn’t exactly what we humans expect to hear, we can’t deny their beauty. These tall birds easily catch our eye with their pretty-in-pink feathers (dyed pink thanks to the food they eat!).
There’s only six types of flamingos in the world (isn’t that wild!), and they all have their own unique shade of pink feathers.
The real versions of these stunning birds are incredibly social, and you may find yourself making your own flock of flamingos so none of them are lonely. This small list includes an array of unique flamingo-inspired projects.

Flamingo Feet Baby Booties (+ Adult Sized Flamingo Slippers)
Aren’t these the sweetest? These booties are originally sized for a six-month-old baby, but, as noted in the pattern, you can increase the size of your hook and yarn to make bigger booties for an older baby.
There is an included bonus section for adult-sized slippers! No need to second-guess or find another slipper pattern. Scroll down past the infant-sized bootie pattern to discover the adult-sized pattern.

Find Your Flock: Flamingo Wallhanging
If you’re not familiar with Corner to Corner (C2C) projects, this wall hanging is perfect for dipping your feet into this pixel-esque style of crocheting. It’s great practice and works up much faster than a large C2C blanket.
C2C patterns often come as a graph-only pattern, but this pattern offers both a written pattern and a graph to follow. At the bottom of the post, there is a quick way to hide the ends of your color changings on this wall art.
If you’re not sure how to work on C2C projects, there is a recommended blog post here.
Fabulous Flamingo Bag
Created by using a graphed design and single crochets, this marvelous bag is perfect for beach vacations and summer holidays. It’s sure to get plenty of compliments.
The graph works up in the intarsia technique, which is just a fancy way of saying to drop your yarn behind the work instead of snipping it off or carrying the loose color through each row. Pictures are included of the bag and what it looks like.
