About Poppi
Poppi was born in the water, and has been in love with it ever since. She plays in the water, sleeps underwater, and ah, if only she didn’t have to head to shore to munch on her favorite grasses, life would be perfect!

6.75 in (17.1 cm) tall if using sport weight yarn with a 2.5mm crochet hook. But you can use any yarn weight and crochet hook size you want, she’ll just grow bigger or smaller!

Skill level
Advanced beginner, due to color changing to create the ears. This pattern contains step-by-step photos of special stitches, as well as detailed instructions. Still have questions? Ask me!

    It’s a downloadable PDF. The instructions are beautiful, high quality and educational. I didn’t know three things about crochet before I read this document but now I know at least five and I think I can handle it. I’ve got good paper to print it out on. I’m gonna make a sweet hippo. What’s not to like?!!
