"This adorable Happy Hippo Hat is an easy animal hat knitting pattern for newborns, babies and toddlers. It was inspired by a fun classic board game that my son found in my parents' basement and it looks so cute on a little one. It includes instructions for the adorable hippo snout and cute little hippo ears. You will want to make more than one to give as gifts for every baby shower you go to!"

This is such a cut pattern for a little one. I have a friend who loves to put different hats on her little one and this will be perfect. You don't see many hippo patterns. Easy to follow and will work up quickly. Thank you.

I just saved this one. I have new twin grand sons and this would look great on them. I have a nice pattern for a diaper cover so it will make a great set. It is easy and should make up quickly. Thank you for sharing this great pattern for my grand sons.

This is another animal hat that is too cute for words. I have seen other hippo hats and I love the simplistic design of this one. Any baby would look adorable wearing it and it is another pattern that would make a perfect gift or photo props. Looks like another pattern I'm adding to my list.

Omg, this is adorable. I'll have to make this for one of my nieces!

I have a friend who loves hippos a lot, so this will be perfect when she has her first baby! Such a cute pattern.
