Knitting is a pleasant activity that perfectly relaxes and distracts from everyday fuss. When there is a desire to entrust, it is not always immediately an idea that can be realized. Today I want to give you an interesting idea - tie a cute hippo as a gift to a child or your friend. Now I will tell you how to do it. What a hippopotamus should have for knitting: • A small hank of gray thread. You can choose any color, I wanted to make a more real hippopotamus, but it's generally not a matter of principle, experiment. • A crochet hook suitable for the thickness of a thread. • Scissors, a needle and a thread. of our hippopotamus. • Black large beads or beads of small size to make behemoth eyes.All items except the hippo's nose we will start with the Amigurumi loop. Since the nose is slightly different, I will explain how to knit it. The rest you will knit about the same, except for the first row. We knit five air loops and one lifting.We tie these loops in a circle, with the addition on the sides.Next we knit three more rows, adding two columns from the corners .Now we knit three more rows without adding. The remaining parts also fit, but instead of air loops you will need to make an Amigurumi loop and tie it up with five or six columns. Here is the Amigurumi loop.You should have 9 parts in total - 2 legs, 2 arms, body, head, 2 ear and nose.We stuff all the parts with synthetic polyester and sew together. Sew eyes, make black nostrils and a smile, as well as navels and you're done.It turns out such a charming hippo. It is not a shame to give such a toy for a birthday or just to please her loved one.
