Pattern Details

This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms. This isn't a very difficult animal to crochet. The head and body are made in two pieces. The body is made with loop stitches that form on the inside of your work. When the body is finished, you turn it around and cut and model the loop stitches into realistic looking spines. The loop stitch is quite easy to crochet when you get the hang of it, but cutting and modelling the spines does require your own skill together with the instructions in the pattern. Size of finished hedgehog made with worsted weight yarn: 6.5 inch / 16.5 cm long and 3 inch / 8cm high. SUPPLIES NEEDED For this crochet hedgehog you'll need worsted weight yarn (Lètt Lopi) and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook and lace weight yarn (Einband Lopi) held together, worked with the same hook. You’ll need two colours of Lètt Lopi, camel 1400 (or straw 1418) and murky brown 1420. Half a skein of each is more than enough. From Einband Lopi you’ll need brown 0853 and beige heather 0886. You’ll use these two as one strand and you can make at least three bodies with the two skeins. For the eyes I've used 7 mm animal eyes. I have needle-felted a round nose but you can also crochet a little nose with dark Lètt Lopi yarn (instructions below). You will also need fibrefill and pellets for a bit of extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads) and a wide comb or fork to model the spines. THE CROCHET PATTERN CONTAINS An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right. PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result. GAUGE Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.

Hello and welcome to my shop. With my easy patterns you can make whimsical crochet animals. For each of my designs, my goal is to create a doll that resembles the real animal, but is also playful with its own character and easy to make for everyone. The yarn I work with is pure wool. The natural and hairy texture of it gives these animals their fuzzy rustic appeal. All Son's Popkes crochet patterns are .PDF files that include detailed written instructions to crochet the animals, together with useful info, a list of materials, tools and accessories needed, brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn and pictures to help getting everything right. If you need some help or just would like to ask something, I am availeble by email. The .PDF patterns will automatically available for download after you've paid. At you can find my blog with extra info about my patterns, free patterns, tips & tricks and a lot more useful information regarding my patterns.
