Knit Hedgehogs

Twenty rainbow knit miniature hedgehogs.

I got the pattern over at knitted toy box but adjusted it slightly for the nose. Instead of embroidering it on, I knit one last row in the body colour and then pulled the yarn through the stitches to pull them into a point.

These little guys would make great storytelling props, or piled high in a glass vase and displayed on a shelf, or put into party bags along with lollies to take home after a children’s party.

The yarn is from a pack of 50g balls in a hand dyed rainbow colourway from Marta’s Yarns – which you sadly can’t get anymore. Long live the rainbow!
