This adorable hippo lovey is a simple pattern that uses basic shapes and stitches. I sold these at my first craft fair a few months ago and they were a big hit, plus they’re quick to work up. Unlike most loveys that crochet the blanket part and the plushie part separately and seam them together, I wanted to work the head and blanket in one piece and eliminate that extra step. I also found that it made the join much more secure since you never break the yarn.
