Frank Flamingo has such long legs that sometimes he trips himself up. He can be made using just one skein of yarn.
The pattern for him includes instructions for knitting the pieces flat and instructions for knitting the head and body in the round.
Techniques included are cast on (which ever method you prefer), increasing and decreasing, German short row shaping and i-cord. All the techniques are explained in detail throughout the pattern.
If you want to knit Frank in the round you will need double pointed needles, otherwise straight needles will be just perfect.
