I was contacted by a few of you asking if I had a pattern for the cute Amigurumi hippo featured on my website. Sadly, I didn’t have one available at that time but I do have one now…yay!!! I am thrilled to introduce you to Hattie the Hippo! I really enjoyed working on this free crochet hippo pattern and to tell you the truth…it has become one of my favourites! So give it a go and let me know if it is one of your favourites too! 🙂

Free Crochet Hippo Pattern – Materials and Equipment

Yarn used: Fine Sport #2 = 4 ply / 55% cotton and 45% acrylic blend (but 100% cotton or 100% acrylic will work well too)

Other materials used: a long piece of black thread yarn for eye lash embroidery, polyester fiber fill

Crochet hook: 2.5mm = B/1, if using different weight of yarn then refer to hook size recommendations on the yarn but go one size smaller

Other equipment used: scissors, yarn needle, pins with large heads, stitch marker, 12mm safety eyes

Choking hazard warning: the use of safety eyes or buttons poses a choking risk for children under the age of 3 therefore I recommend using embroidery instead
