This is a pdf crochet pattern for a hippo toy 8-10cm tall (depending on yarn used)

For anyone having difficulty working out my leg instructions…I’ve made a video that may help! https://youtu.be/J0_nlkBsNSc

It’s worked almost entirely in the round and you will need to know sc, invisible decreasing and slip stitch. I’ve included plenty of pictures to help with any tricky bits and would suggest the pattern is more suitable for intermediate crocheters.

You will need:

A yarn of your choosing (probably less slightly less than one ball) and the smallest hook that works with it.

Drops Big Merino (aran/worsted weightish) with a 2.5mm hook is nice to use (middle hippo above)
or try any DK/8ply yarn with a 1.5 to 1.75mm hook
or a chunky yarn and 3.5mm to 4mm hook

5mm or 9mm safety eyes or black thread and needle

A few handfuls of stuffing

Also - if you purchase this together with Harriet hippo or if you’ve previously purchased the harriet pattern - this hippo pattern should only cost you $2…:)
