This cute hippo looks ready to walk off the dishcloth. This knit dishcloth design is a solid profile picture of a hippo. He faces to the right with attention to details such as his perfectly shaped head and cute little ears down to his tiny tail.

The design is not symmetrical so adjustments may need to be made by lefty knitters if it matters which way he faces.

The picture is created in garter stitch on a stockinette background. The border is seed stitch, but the pattern is written so that you may substitute a preferred border if you wish.
