Recently it was a Canadian friend's birthday, and like any Canadian around our age he always loved and wished he had a House Hippo. Being American myself I missed out on this phenomenon. However, even seeing this as an adult I still want one. So I set out to make one.
Hippo-colored yarn is hard to come by, so I went with a more eccentric hippo. I have requests to make more for friends - I don't blame them, he's adorable!
