  • 00:34: this new year, we have made our dad a gift hippo leather handmade although it did not do because I still have not grown to the point I will also show it now Now such we have leather hippo handmade Golden hands so as not to hurt the master Pope delighted with our but the hippo was bored and decided to make him a friend
  • 01:05: we all girlfriend is such a flower knitted from a large number of motifs This crochet motif It called "African Flower" for its manufacture we need two motives are rectangular and which will form the nostrils two motives heptagonal blades is our hippo
  • 01:31: Two octagonal motif tummy and buttocks and all other details of pentagonal and hexagonal shapes hexagonal motifs we need 12 pieces constitute the greater number of pentagonal motifs pentagonal pieces we need 26 pieces Knit theme "African Flower" is not difficult. The scheme can be found on the Internet My hippo was very cheap to manufacture
  • 02:02: We do not buy anything for making it all the materials found at home home found a suitable thread blue and yellow like these ones they even had a label 1964 Hippo we turned Vintage because the thread I was old, but not previously used For your hippo you can choose absolutely any thread any color and any thickness
  • 02:30: But your thread should be the same thickness with each other Because the thickness of the thread at different parts will have different size bad will be interconnected My family really liked this hippo I think you will be very interesting and easy to make it yourself so let me tell you step by step how to do it and where to start
  • 03:01: We start with the fact that we associate the right amount of detail to the assembly not to be distracted by the production of missing parts so let's get to work soon and you too will soon be a swamp with hippos I have this already I introduced you to his girlfriend buns Now let's see how to make it make it easy and simple to do that I needed Hanks few threads of different colors in my case it was a thread called "iris" in two colors blue and yellow
  • 03:36: small thread consumption Hanks and some one of another color make it a snap My hippo linked from motifs called "African Flower" to assemble such a hippo took me to tie a lot of details about 40 pieces I wanted to make it fun so I compose the colors that I had
  • 04:05: made the middle of a yellow or blue and the outer part of a different color Now I'll show you what came of it and it turns out we have here is a beauty two colors are obtained by very different motives tally very quick and easy We begin with the fact that we will collect our hippo snout
  • 04:32: for this we need a hook and pentagonal parts in the amount of 5 pieces To begin, select the color of our eyes will the formation of the head and muzzle will start with the eyes determine which color is more suitable to us we will either blue-eyed hippo or yellow-eyed I think it should be flower hippo with blue eyes
  • 05:00: so start collecting the eyes of those that's identical motifs and a second to bond with each other motives, we need the right color thread it was originally wound here in this beautiful skein but my cat decided that the thread is wound and unwound them wrong
  • 05:32: so I had to rewind the thread just in the bun to join motifs introduce a hook into the air loop in the corner parts and connect a simple hand column if all our items are connected properly, then each side is made up of 9 loops accordingly, we need to knit and fasten together these loops
  • 06:03: last loop in the connecting row is knitted into the air loop in the corner parts anchoring several air loops cut the thread and tighten the noose let's see what we've got We wrenched out and see it was very neat and smooth seam
  • 06:35: in the same way to attach eyes crown hippo head it will have a contrasting color take it with a yellow middle edges and blue We proceed likewise We connect the parts together and knit the first loop in the corner parts
  • 07:08: loop knit the last loop in the air at the corner anchoring parts and cut the thread tails all that we are, we will remove and cut off the hide We joined one of the head to the eyelets
  • 07:32: and just as we proceed with the second side So what we've got? top with a yellow middle, eyes blue and go to the muzzle for faces, we need two more pentagonal motifs to take the muzzle motifs with yellow middle, and pre-connect them with each other combine motifs as the previous simple column
  • 08:01: the first loop in the air enter the drawing loop and sew up the side finish line, cut the thread and tighten it We are looking now and what we've got We get wonderful smooth seam proceed to the compound eye and muzzle
  • 08:30: cut off the unnecessary tails so that they do not interfere with us when fastening components is important not to mix up the side of their connection not to sew parts inside seamy this way we get a top eyes and muzzle to muzzle this part we tie another pentagonal motif the edges tie quadrangular details
  • 09:04: This will be the nostrils of our faces the second side of the pentagon that will connect the nostrils without taking tie thread We already appears the outline of the muzzle at the edges of the nostrils snout attach quadrilateral motives
  • 09:43: Now our eyes are already hippo of the faces and nostrils our beauty is already taking shape the next step is attaching to the muzzle of the cheeks
  • 10:00: cheeks will be joining the eye of the muzzle and nostrils thus we give our volume and roundness of the face our hippo appeared cheeks what is missing in our face? our face is not enough ears ears, we will make of pentagonal motifs folded in half
  • 10:30: to get involved here in this part of simultaneously attaching temples which are also composed of pentagonal motifs that's ready to our ears head and muzzle taking shape and becoming similar to the final product Honestly - the most complex in the manufacture of the head was joining the ears because the seam turns dense and you need to look more closely matching loops
  • 11:01: the next step is the formation of the lower part of the muzzle for this we will assign a hexagonal piece in place where it should be chin it must be done in such a way that the parties involved were five parts this kind of head we get from below the last action we have established here this hexagonal motif
  • 11:31: we still have one more thing is a hole there and we place pentagonal motif we get here is a view from above and a view from below hexagonal part and a pentagonal part which we have consolidated in the last turn We proceed to the manufacture of neck neck consists of three parts of pentagonal and hexagonal two parts hexagonal items will be sewn on the bottom and top parts pentagonal
  • 12:06: to facilitate the work, first make a ring of said elements and then attach around the head perimeter ready for harvesting her neck remained connected in the ring it is very important not to make a mistake and the right side is connected items together ready our neck she has a look like this
  • 12:32: two hexagon bottom and three top pentagon Now we need to connect the two parts of the head and neck gut-wrenching details of both the head and neck neck detail put into the head and begin to connect with pentagonal seam details at the bottom of the head
  • 13:00: to him be attached hexagonal parts of the neck We are moving right to left, not interrupting the thread let's see what we've got Now our head and we have just attached a ring of three pentagonal and hexagonal two parts Our hippo is more wrinkled and not as nice as it would be desirable but it is to fix it when we fill it in
  • 13:34: We proceed to the further development of trunk will gather to start the front foot front legs are composed of pentagonal and hexagonal motifs the outer side of the foot is pentagonal motif inside of the hexagonal motif to collect the paw combine motifs from three sides our legs ready we need to connect them together
  • 14:01: along the upper edge we remember that the inside of the paw consists of hexagonal and pentagonal outside of the parts we joined paws and that's got such "castanets" then we attach legs to the bottom of the neck which consists of hexagonal parts Now we have fixed the front legs at the bottom of the neck
  • 14:31: and it is already beginning to take shape silhouette more should be connected together for these parties This could be done continuously, but I did not immediately figured out the circuit assembly is why we join the queue for legs are attached to the bottom of the neck on the four edges of the hexagonal parts right paw connects the two sides of a hexagon on the right side of the neck left paw connects the two sides of a hexagon on the left side of the neck
  • 15:05: I folded in half hippo to show where the next piece is sewn The following item is hexagonal and it should connect the two legs and the neck just as we did with the other hand We sewed hexagons between the leg and the two parts of the neck
  • 15:30: just as we did with the other hand and go to the back for this part of the back, we need two heptagonal motive we first I fasten together and then attach here We have put together heptagonal parts that will make up the central part of the back heptagonal motives are attached here in the area of ​​the blades hippo we have prepared our two back sewn heptagon
  • 16:05: and begin to move to the stomach now we need to sew hexagonal motif which will connect the heptagonal detail on the back and a pentagonal part near the legs on the other hand we do the same thing after the right place sewn hexagonal motif
  • 16:34: in the profile of our hippo looks like this is not the legs and abdomen in order to complete the production of stomach Now here you need to sew an octagonal piece and engage with the six-party items
  • 17:00: two free side parts remain for fixing the hind legs ready to stomach our hippo we used six sides of the octagonal parts Here there is a place for legs proceed to mix the hind legs if the front legs we were made as follows: inside was a hexagonal and the outer part of the pentagonal
  • 17:30: hind legs do the opposite the inside of the legs will be composed of pentagonal details and the outer part of the hexagonal parts Our next task is to attach to the foot octagonal abdomen details I remind you that the front legs are assembled from parts outside pentagonal and hexagonal parts inside hind legs do the opposite pentagonal and hexagonal parts inside outside
  • 18:00: we attached hind legs and there still remains a void that needs to be closed and round ass hippo Now we are going to do our work is coming to an end it remains to draw the back of the hippo for this we do not have much detail
