I made a baby Phoenix, because I didn't see one anywhere.

Hope you like him.

I'll take better pics of him, once the rain lets up.  I crocheted him using red and orange yarn, for the fiery effect.  I also unraveled some yarn and poked it in his head, chest, and for his tail feathers.

I hope you like him/her (not sure yet lol).

Thanks for all the kind words.  No pattern, but I'm not totally happy with this little guy, so I will try to write down what I did, it's basically 2 spheres done with red heart orange and red yarn (that's a work out on the hands lol) and a G hook.  Once I got them together, I made the wings, and connected them, then I unraveled the same orange and red yarn, and stuck 1 strand at a time in, the tail is totally made up of this method, some on his head, and some on his chest, I thought using these techniques, would give him a more fiery appearance.  I just need to bump up the cute meter on him lol.

This is my first solo, and I only really started crocheting about 2 months ago lol, I always did granny stitches, but didn't know the difference between the front loop and the back loop, until I was curious and started surfing and found all of you talented people, and a few other sites.  Who am I kidding, I LOVE stuffed Animals, I'm 48 and I've loved them all my life, (real animals too) so it's the Amigurumi that lit the fire lol.   Tongue

Actually, i find this technique of urs is fascinating, and it creates interesting outcome, double yarn but unravel a bit every few stitch, its amazing!! Thank you sooooo much! Will try out something else in mind later on.
