I made this Happypotamus as a gift for a friend!
Yarn: Lion Brand Pound of Love (Oxford Grey), Mira mini skeins (many colors)
Hook: C (2.75mm)
Each motif was made from 2 colors - 1 for the inside & grey for the outside. I used an invisible join (there are instructions in the pattern) to join the motifs because I didn’t want to sew them all together!
To prevent stuffing from showing through, I sewed the bottom (& sleeves?) of a t-shirt up, inserted it into the hippo, and then put the stuffing inside the t-shirt. (The neck hole was stitched closed before crocheting on the last motif.)
The eyes are 16 mm buttons and the tail is braided.
