  • Project Details


    I have always been a keen knitter but never crocheted so had a few crochet lessons and managed to finish this in time for Maisie's first birthday in November 2016. My next crochet project is to be an animal blanket, when I have finished knitting a cardigan for myself and a jumper for my grandson

      Adorable. Looks like it would take a lot of time to make but well worth it for your grand daughter.

      I too have made this lovely hippo. I found him in a book Zoomigurumi 3 and you can download the sailor hat pattern. I have found that this has come out on the large side for his head so I'm attempting to reduce it for a better fit. Have yet to complete the bathing suit but the finished frog is fab! Thanks for sharing Grannie Fannie - sadly I'm not going to be a granny but I do have a gorgeous great niece, who I know will love this. X
