This little hippo lens buddy was made at a friend's request because friends really are the best inspiration! It's a simple pattern with super cute results because you really can't go wrong with a gigantic gray animal that you would probably run from in the wild transformed into an adorable little lens buddy hugging your camera lens. This pattern is suitable for beginners who are looking for something just a little more adventurous! It includes a photo tutorial on how to begin the first round. You should know how to make a magic circle and to crochet in the round.
