Love hedgehogs? Who doesn’t? They’re 100% adorable, which is why I knew I had to make my very own hedgehog pillow. And here it is!
Isn’t this just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? I just love his little nose–and look at those feet! I purposefully designed his feet so that his cute little toes were left free and wiggly. Bonus: his soft bobble-stitch back makes him extra cuddly!
In fact, my husband says that the Hedgehog Pillow is his favorite crocheted thing out of all of the things I’ve ever made…I think he likes it even more than I do!
To make this Hedgehog Pillow, I’ve used a variety of yarns, but the bulk of it was Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in the colors Little Rock Granite and Los Angeles Tan. His face and feet were made with Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn in the colors Black, Pink, Taupe, and a little bit of White for his eyes.
Most of this pattern is made using either the bobble stitch or double crochet. Unfamiliar with bobble stitch? Don’t worry! I’ve included lots of detailed, step-by-step written instructions for how to make the bobbles for this pillow. So as long as you can do the chain, single crochet, half-double crochet and double crochet stitches, you can make this pillow!
