17-21. 42sc = 42
Leave the long end of the thread for sewing on the legs. Fill with filler and sew to the torso.
For the tail, we cut 30 threads of 40 cm. We pass the threads through a loop of 23 rows of the hippo’s body (where the decrease started). It turns out 60 thread. Weave a pigtail. At the end we tie it with a knot and cut it so that you get a brush. Number of threads and tail length can be changed as desired.
We make a face
It remains to sew / glue the eyes and make weights.
To form a mouth, we stretch the thread from the center of the mouth to the right nostril, return to the mouth, stretch into the left nostril, again return to the mouth, to the center of the upper lip, to the center of the lower lip, to the center mouth and there we fix the thread.
For the navel, we stretch the thread from the front of the neck (where sewn on the head), to the navel and return back to the neck. Fasten a thread.

Teeth

1.6 sc into magic ring

3-5. 1sc, inc = 18
Leave the long end of the thread and sew the teeth on her lower lip.
