What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Happypotamus Link to website or photo www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/happypotamus-the-happy-hippo-crochet-pattern What are you most proud of? I am not really good at making animals so am so proud that she came together so well. She is much larger than the pattern says (About 30" long) because I used a larger hook (G hook) and instead of sock yarn used worsted weight yarn. I think the next one I will make smaller. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern is so well written with pictures and diagrams. My advice is to read through the whole pattern first then make sure you can do the African Flower, then start your Hippo. The pattern gives you the option of join as you go or sewing the motifs together. I opted to sew them together. I also added a tail.
