The smile on the Hippo Animal Pillow’s face will convince your child that fun will follow their friendly adventures! Showing a toothy grin, Hippo can be your child’s best friend on his next imaginary excursion. This brightly colored purple crocheted pillow is perfect for long car rides. The body is made in two pieces, then whipstitch together.
Easily crochet this pillow friend using medium weight yarn (approximately one skein = 370 yards [338 meters]) in the following colors: purple (one skein), lilac (36 yards [33 meters]); and, small amounts of yarn for each of these colors: white and black.
It also requires sizes I and J (5.5 and 6 mm) crochet hooks, a 12” x 16” (30.5 cm x 40.5 cm) pillow form and a yarn needle. The Hippo Animal Pillow is rated at an “easy” skill level. This project is from the original publication 6581 – Kid’s Animal Pillows.
