Description from book:
In the wild, hippos may not be cute and friendly, but this one is! For this adorable round little friend I held two strands of sock yarn together throughout and still had a lot of yarn left at the end. The doubled yarn gives the hippo a substantial feel when finished. The pattern is simple, with minimal seaming and fewer pieces, and you can complete it in a shorter amount of time because of the larger needle size and doubled yarn. This one is just right all-around!
