What my DH wants her to be and what she is are two totally different things. He wanted her to stand, wear a tiny Nordic hat with horns, a breastplate, holding a spear, singing opera. (Which is a great idea for down the road when I get better at designing.) ~~~For now, Helga is just a normal hippo in the abstract jungle!!! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY ch, sc, dc, increase, decrease GAUGE To be perfectly honest I never pay attention to the gauge when doing critters. Just know that if you use a thicker yarn and bigger hook, you're going to get a bigger critter (which is actually a great way to get a Mama or Papa critter!) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 7.5" long, 4.5" tall

Supplies Needed

  • 1/4 skein Lion Brand Homespun "Lagoon"

  • 2 yds Red Heart Super Saver White

My crocheted amigurumi patterns of adorable stuffed critters are fashioned in vibrant abstract jungle colors. Look over the newborns in the critter nursery! The "Gumball Dragon" series is what's hot now. See if you can find the dragon in the candy color that your family will cherish!! Each "critter" is handmade using nothing but time, imagination and the desire to see if "I can" create it. The TBC "unraveled" look is somewhere on it's person, whether it be as horns, eyelashes, a mane, a tail, or maybe a beard of white.
