What you need to know

Dainty and delightful, Val Pierce's hippo can't help but make you smile

This little lady dreams of being a prima ballerina and who are we to stop her! She's knitted in stocking stitch using simple shaping, so is well suited to beginner knitters. The dress is worked separately from the body and in two pieces. The skirt features a fake picot edge, which is really easy to do. You work in stocking stitch, followed by a row of basic eyelets. When you're done, just fold it in half and you have a decorative edge - we love it when it's this easy! Don't forget to share photos of your finished toy. You can find our contact details on page 51.

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
