Hippo and Bunny

I found a few patterns from Amigurumi Today to crochet and picked up some yarn at my local yarn store West 7th Wool in Fort Worth. The first one is the Easter Bunny Amigurumi.

I don’t know what yarn this was – it was soft and a fun variegated color. I think it’s suppose to be for socks or a shawl? But not for amigurumi and not for me. It was too stretchy but I finished the bunny anyway. I have all this yarn left on the skein but I think I’ll be donating it to Goodwill.
For this next one, I switched yarns and started on the Hippo in Swimsuit pattern. The yarn is Anzula Squishy 25g and with that 10% Cashmere included it’s a dream to work with.
Hippo was the gray color yarn and Pesto is the color I used for the swimming suit. I also had some miscellaneous nuggets of black and teal that I added some stripe details.
Here’s the finished hippo. I changed the muzzle and worked in a round/oval instead of starting with a chain. My chains tend to be too loose and I didn’t want stuffing to show through. I also added the nostrils.
