HIPPO AND ELEPHANT TOY KNITTING PATTERNS

Hippo and elephant are best friends and love to lounge around; both toys can be knitted from a 100g skein of DK weight yarn.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the hippo and elephant, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles, apart from the tails which are i-cord pieces knitted on two DPNs. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.

YARN, NEEDLES AND NOTIONS INCLUDE:

  • A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
  • DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); both toys can be knitted from a 100g skein
  • Toy filling
  • Domed buttons for eyes (or you can use beads or toy safety eyes)
