Easy Velvet Hippo Crochet Amigurumi Pattern

Friends, today we will crochet a very easy hippo amigurumi. Amigurumi is made using velvet yarn. When you use velvet yarn, amigurumi is much easier to crochet. The biggest reason for this is the lack of small details. You usually crochet in a simple way. Also, hippo amigurumi is not very big in size. For this reason, if you are going to crochet with normal yarn, it will be quite small. I recommend using velvet yarn. You can make a plush hippo in a very short time. You can see the required materials in the description section. Now let’s crochet hippo pattern amigurumi step by step.

Required materials:
1. Yarn YARNaRt dolce (lilac color); iris yarn (black)
2. Hook 3mm.
3. Eyes 12mm on a secure mount
4. Scissors, white thread, needle, marker.
5. Filler (holofiber)
—————————
In the head pattern, a row is missed after row 10, you need to knit another row 3sc – (1pssn – pr (pssn) * 7 times) -2pssn -7sc (33) 🙈 (then everything is according to the scheme)
