This big, cute, and cuddly hippo is named "Heinz" and is from the booklet "Fantastische Häkel-Ideen Maxi-Amigurumi Vol. 4 Heft 01/2015". Instead of using RibbonXL, I worked with Zpagetti. I had to add a few more rows in the middle to make sure that Heinz doesn't become a ball.
Since he's finished, he's staying on the couch with me, to keep me company - and always greets me with a big smile when I come into the living room!
