A whole family of cuddly hedgehogs in one pattern. These cute little guys are far from prickly. They can sit upright to gaze at the stars or lean forward to snuffle around. For an INTERMEDIATE knitter because the construction uses short row shaping (explained in the pattern) and picking up stitches. The hedgehogs are mostly knitted flat on straight needles using short row shaping. The face and arms are knitted in the round on dpns. Each hedgehog is a quick knit and there is some sewing, but only two short seams. HINTS AND TIPS to help you with this pattern are available on my blog this is mentioned in the pattern.

I'm an expat Brit living in the San Francisco Bay Area and a stay at home Mum. I'm also an avid knitter with many ideas for interesting designs using unusual construction and techniques. My Mum taught me to knit when I was 7 years old, I thought I'd forgotten it but when I came back to knitting 7 years ago I discovered that it was all still there. I love to knit in 3D and around corners, so I use knitting in the round and short row shaping in many of my designs. I'd also prefer not to sew lots of pieces together, so my knitted toy designs have as little sewing as I can manage.
