I’m on a roll knitting stuffed animals lately! I knit up a couple of these Knit Hedgehogs from the purl bee because I saw them on pinterest and just thought they were adorable! Now I have a happy little hedgehog couple to keep me company from the bookshelf.


This was a super fun pattern, especially attaching the “spines” to the little belly! The pattern is seamless, starting from the nose, and goes really quickly. I used some Encore worsted that I had lying around for the face and belly, and some Wild Apple Hill Farm 100% wool for the “spines”. I tried out two different methods for making the nose – Harold has the nose made from the purl bee instructions, and Henrietta has a french knot nose. Go knit yourself some hedgies!
