Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet in the round
  • beginning a round with adjustable or magic loop
  • slip stitch (sl.st.)
  • crochet increases and decreases

Pattern Description:

Originally this pattern was going to just be for the hippo design but I soon realised it could be very easily adapted - and so I did!

It's my first written pattern and I only learned to crochet a year ago, pretty much from all the wonderful Youtube videos that people have put out there, so there is nothing very complicated in this pattern. As an added bonus - there is no piecing together afterwards.

Please let me know how you like it and if there are any errors!
