This is a downloadable three page PDF pattern with detailed instructions and illustrations for making the Pin Loom Hippopotamus. The finished Hippopotamus measures 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm). I modeled this hippo after "William" the ancient Egyptian ceramic hippopotamus that is a well loved exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum and serves as their informal mascot. This pattern requires, at a minimum, the use of a 2" x 2" and a 4" x 4" pin loom. I used a 2" x 4" and a 4" x 6" pin loom in making the pattern but it is entirely possible to join the 2" and 4" squares to construct the pattern. Beginner level crochet skills are also needed.
Look for the Pin Loom Elephant Pattern as part of a pattern pack along with the Pin Loom Hippo.
