The irrepressible Hippocritter! A loveable chunky friend with a very wide behind. Sturdy striped legs can be spread out flat for taking a rest or set up straight for walking and playing. Tactile side panels give interest for curious hands.

This critter is worked flat in pieces and seamed together. The features are embroidered. Photos are included to guide you in assembling your hippocritter. Full written pattern with helpful tips included.

The design will work in most yarns in the DK/worsted/light aran range.
