The hedgehog crochet pattern is finished, and just in time because it’s really autumn now, the perfect season to crochet hedgehogs! My previous post already showed a glimpse of Flims, but here he is in his full glory.
When I started working on this crochet hedgehog pattern, I wasn’t sure how to create the hedgehog prickles. I tried several techniques but they all had disadvantages that would influence the end result. For instance, I thought the loop stitch would give the perfect prickly effect, but the loops form in the inside of the head and turning it around wasn’t an option because that would leave sloppy colour changes. Neither do I like the texture of the inside.
I decided to go for brushing and I’m absolutely glad I did. Flims is an animal softy and I love him. He now is very cuddly and also has hedgehog features, because of his little snouty face, shape and colours. Flims is the soft amigurumi version of his prickly congener.
Here are some more pictures and below them you can find info about the pattern. Working with a mixed coloured yarn can be a bit tricky sometimes, hence the white spot beneath Flims his eye. It does give him some extra character.
The Flims, crochet hedgehog pattern is available in my shop and in my Ravelry shop. Flims is sitting 5 inch/12,7 cm tall. I used three colours of Lett lopi yarn. The furry back is one of those three colours but brushed with a hard brush. The pattern is written in standard American crochet terms and contains a clear description of the materials and yarns needed and of how to crochet and attach the hedgehog. It also contains many example pictures.
I hope everyone will enjoy making this hedgehog as much as I did.
