Happypotamus is the second of my patterns that makes use of the African Flower hexagon crochet motif and variations thereof, joined in a specific order to make a recognizable 3D toy.
I love this African Flower pattern and the creative possibilities of using it to make 3D items.
Happy is made using four different African Flower motifs: Hexagon, Pentagon, Heptagon and Octagon. It's also an excellent stash buster project, as you only need to use very small amounts of leftover sock yarn to make a motif.

Materials:

  • 2.0mm crochet hook
  • basic sewing supplies
  • 10mm wire looped glass eyes
  • polyester stuffing
  • doll making needle
  • +/- 130g of yarn, all different scraps and colors

Colorway:

all different colors

Step by step instructions made this project so managable.
The "Join as you go" method takes some mastering, but is well worth the perseverance to get it right. Love the finished item and now on to making the other projects using African Flower motifs :)
