Difficulty: Easy
This pattern refers to “Main Color”. This is the main color you will use for your hedgehog. I used a furry color in pink for my main color. We start by making the head, which then works into the body. The head and body are one piece. We then make the muzzle, ears, arms & legs. Then we are done with the big hedgehog! Last, we make the baby hedgehog. Done!

Note about yarn: This pattern uses Red Heart’s Hygge Fur yarn. Since crocheting with fuzzy yarn can be really hard, I pair it with a regular 4 weight yarn in a similar color. If you crochet with the strands of fuzzy yarn and regular yarn together, it will be much easier to see your stitches. Please remember that this pattern is designed for fuzzy yarn. So if you make this pattern with regular yarn it may come out pretty different. The fuzzy yarn requires less shaping in the pattern, so if you use regular yarn your hedgehog may come out looking more blobby and smaller.

Another note: If you have your hedgehog facing wrong side out, he will be much fuzzier. I have my big hedgehogs facing wrong side out.

Arms and legs:

In light Brown

With a long piece of light brown yarn, insert the needle into the body and pull out where you will put the arm. Tie a knot in this spot 3 times (Pic 1-3). This will make an arm. Insert needle one stitch over and pull out to the leg area (Pic 4). Repeat making the 3 knots, and pull out to the next leg area (Pic 5). Repeat the knots, and pull out to the arm area (Pic 6). Make the knots and finish off.

Done! If you made this I would be SO HAPPY if you showed me a picture! Please “try it” on Pinterest to show me your creation 🙂
