Someone recently asked me if I could crochet some Vanna’s Choice animals they had the pattern for. ‘No can do’, said I, ‘but I can make my own knit versions’.

So I designed a few little mini jungle animals.

First up - the Hippo.

I think I love this little guy. He’s so squidgy and cute, and the perfect size for little hands to hold.

And so small that you can easily knit one in an evening.
