Thank you for the comments! Yeah, he knit up very quickly. Once he started taking shape, I just didn't want to put the needles down. I can't wait to see everyone's versions! There are so many different colors and types of fur yarns that can be used.

I bought some eyes and a nose for him at Joann Fabrics (my local AC Moore and Michaels only carry glue-on googly eyes :-(). Just for the heck of it I went with more realistic eyeballs as opposed to the solid black. Here's the final result. One of my friends told me he looks like he's wearing a rainbow clown wig. :-)

Just remember that felting is very forgiving. Your knitting does NOT have to be perfect for the end result to look stunning!

Pixiepurls,

Definitely don't stress over the paws. A couple stitches more or less won't matter. They'll felt up and turn out fine! I missed a couple rows in the back shaping, and you can't tell at all.

Hello fellow knitters.....I just learned of this site a few days ago and I ran across this wonderfully cute hedge hog. I am not such a patient person to wait for a pattern to be shipped to me so I called my LYS and to my delightment they had ONE left!! It must have been my lucky day!! So, I drove to my LYS and picked up the pattern and enough yarn to make two. One will have an apple green body with pink/white/apple green back and the other will have a plum body with dk. green/lt. green/plum back. I just started on the apple green one and am very excited to complete my very first hedgie!! I will post a picture when she is complete =)

Taking Shape
I started my Hedgie last night and I just finished the front with the apple green yarn. Here she is...quite funny looking and you can see why I call her a "she"... she looks like she has a "chest".. LOL.
