Let me introduce you super cute lovey — Smiley Hippo 😉
He is really simple to make. You need to know basics of crocheting: sc, dc, ch, hdc; additional, you need to know how to make a bobble stitch (if you’re interested in this tutorial — let me know, I’m concerning about such tutorial right now and would be nice to know that someone need it)
I suppose, this pattern would be suitable for beginners as far as it contains many photos and explanations to CAL.
You can get this pattern in my Etsy shop. Enjoy!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
