Here is an adorable amigurumi hippo for you and the little one. The cuteness reading is off the scale. While targeted to crocheters of intermediate skill, even a beginner will find it a good challenge and skill builder. What you get is a lovely, huggable toy that’s just about 6″ tall, perfect for bedtime or as a companion for off to kindergarten or school. The pattern is easy to understand and gives you lots of flexibility in terms of color. This is one enjoyable ami. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.

I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to making our crochet society bigger and more popular.
I’m interested in crafts and interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.
