Crochet Amigurumi Hippo – Harvey Hippo

Harvey-Hippo-HYY-1

Here is Harvey Hippo! He’s a super friendly Safari tour guide. He loves the great outdoors and going on exciting adventures!  His pattern is now available to download in my Etsy store.

I wanted to release the pattern earlier but my whole family, including me, came down with the flu for a couple of weeks and then I became busy with other requests.  All is well now.

Harvey is the 3rd amigurumi animal from my Safari series.  You can check the other animals from the series – Professor Elbert the Elephant and Graceful Gemma Giraffe.

The pattern is suitable for beginners and very easy to put together. A knowledge of magic ring/circle and whipstitch sewing is required.

I used a 4.5mm hook and 8 ply yarn to crochet Harvey Hippo and the finished hippo measured about 41cm (16 inches) from top to bottom.  He is actually bigger than Professor Elbert Elephant! I think I must have had a loose tension or super relaxed tension when I made Harvey. I used the same weight yarn for all the safari animals.
