Someone found a small mistake in the hippo pattern, in the instructions for the leg. I haven't written out the full instructions, but you should be able to locate this section in your pattern. You will find the correct stitch count in bold:
Next: P 3 rows.
Next: k2, skpo, k15, k2tog, k2. (21 sts) P 1 row.
Next: k5, [k2tog] twice, k3, [skpo] twice, k5. (17 sts)
Work 7 rows in st st.
The original pattern was off by one stitch, which hopefully is a small enough error that you won't be too upset with me. I really do need to find some test knitters, or even proof-readers. None of my knitting friends are interested in making toys, so I've always just relied on myself to check my patterns, and hope I don't make too many mistakes.
I'm planning a big post for tomorrow with a bunch of photos about what I was up to this weekend. There were no eggs and only one bunny, but there was chocolate ice cream and lots of fun!
