  • This pattern is suitable for a confident beginner

Pattern Description:

Toby and Tilly are two sweet little hedgehogs. They stand 10 and a 1/2 inches high and are sure to be a big hit with children and adults alike

They are knitted flat using DK or equivalent yarns. Everything but the fun fur is knitted on 3mm needles, the fun fur uses 4mm.

A fun knit from a pattern that pattern is clear and easy to understand and has no complicated stitches or shaping.

Gauge is not that important as long as you are consistent and you knit tight enough so the stuffing does not show through.
