This crochet hippo pattern is designed to be fairly easy to work up, but with enough detail on the features to make it look uniquely awesome. The main crochet hippo toy is made from gray/blue yarn, but the inner ears and foot pads are highlighted in white to give it a bit more of a pop.

To create my crochet hippo toy I used the following equipment:

100g Women’s Institute gray/blue aran yarn
25g white aran yarn
5mm crochet hook
Yarn needle
Toy safe stuffing
Four safety eyes

You can follow the pattern with another brand or even weight of yarn if you want to, just make sure you use a crochet hook that is designed to work with the yarn you pick. Most of them have a note on the packaging that gives you the desired size.

I used safety eyes for both the eyes and the nostrils, but you are welcome to hand sew these instead if that’s your preference!
