I recently discovered the joys of addiction-enabling groups on Facebook! Anne introduced me to a group called Creative Crochet Crew - a group of crocheters and crafty people from all over the world, sharing ideas, pictures and links to patterns of the most amazing array of crochet craft!
It was on this group that I started seeing photos of the cutest little hippos.
I tracked down the pattern to the very talented Heidi Bears and splashed out on several of her patterns based on the african flower hexagon - a hippo, rhino, elephant and giraffe.
My animals started off veeery large:
|Grunhilda, 8ply acrylic with 3.5mm hook|
|Bessie, fine 4ply acrylic with 2mm hook|
I still think the hippo is my favourite, but I do like the others as well! Here are some more sample pictures:
