Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

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!

I thought it was a bit mean to make them seperate patterns so here you get 2for1. Huzzah!

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!

I started this crochet lark back in 2010 - and from Youtube. Since learning the basics have been totally unable to follow a pattern. So, I just make up my own and occasionally - I write them down. :)

I have two children at school, my daughter is totally the reason I keep creating these things!
