Ember The Phoenix
"Ember the Phoenix, his wings spread wide, is the bright fire bird amigurumi you are looking for. Wired wings and peacock-style tail feathers make him a proud example of this mythical creature. Ember’s wings are all one piece done in the round, layering the feathers in the front loops only and then working the next round on the back loops. This makes the back (inside) of the wings flat, so they fold in half easily and hold their shape. Since they are folded in half, they look the same on the front and back and they have layers of depth that really make his wings POP! The wings are also wired so they stand well on their own."
