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 instructionsโ€ฆIโ€™ve made a video that may help! https://youtu.be/J0_nlkBsNSc

Itโ€™s worked almost entirely in the round and you will need to know sc, invisible decreasing and slip stitch. Iโ€™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 youโ€™ve previously purchased the harriet pattern - this hippo pattern should only cost you $2โ€ฆ:)
