Higgins the Hippo
Higgins is a chubby blue hippo! He is quite quick to knit if you are looking for a weekend knitting project.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the hippo, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles, apart from the tail which is a single crochet chain worked on a crochet hook. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.
FINISHED SIZE: The finished hippo is approximately 11cm high, 13cm long and 7cm wide.
