Here's a little blue cow I made yesterday. Isn't she stylish and cozy in her sweater & scarf?  Wink

This was one of those times I just picked up hook and yarn and had no idea what I was going to make, and this is what emerged. That's what I enjoy so much about making amigurumi: you don't have to know how to do anything too complicated to have a lot of fun. I think that crochet really lends itself to improvisation.

The cow is just under 6" tall and is made of worsted weight acrylic yarn using a 4 mm (F) hook. The scarf is the same yarn but knitted on 4.5 mm (UK 7 / US 7) needles using a simple drop stitch pattern.

I love how you crocheted her sweater as part of her body! She is very cute! Nicely done!

I think crochet and improvisation go very well together, actually. though.. I think your cow would make a very nice hippo! Its probably the colors, but if you added small white nubs to her mouth it would look just like a hippo Cheesy

I was thinking the same thing! But, isn't a female hippo called a cow? Quirkiest never did say that it was a dairy cow...

Thanks, craftADDchick and vanillaxlight Smiley

I can totally see that it could be a hippo -- great idea! I think that if I give to a child, I shouldn't say what animal it is, and see what they come up with.
