Starter Hedgehog Pattern

If you’re new to knitting toys, let this hedgehog show you the way!

The pattern comes with instructions to make a small, simple hedgehog in both flat and circular versions. Depending on your experience, the project can be finished in a few hours or even minutes! Basic knitting knowledge (casting on, knitting and purling, increase and decrease stitches) is required. Worsted-weight yarn is recommended, but you can use fingering-weight yarn and size 1 US (2.25mm) needles for a really tiny guy.

Also available as a kit!

Recommended yarn:
Worsted-weight yarn, such as Cascade 220, in 2 colors, plus optional black for eyes
Recommended needles:
Size 5 US (3.75mm) needles (straight, circular, or double-pointed)
Finished size:
About 2.5″ (6.5cm) long
