yippee!!!!!!! They're very fast, I knit all 3 of mine in 1 week. I think the pattern was very easy to follow and yes wota will work, you'll need 165 yards for each hedgehog + 10 yards contrasting color for paws + 100 yards of eyelash yarn, I used lion brand's fun fur (need 2 skeins per hog). The Michael's here is closing it out at $1.00 a skein! Can't wait to see yours.

I'm a severe newbie and was able to complete this lil guy. The first one I did I just did with some cheap acrylic yarn since I did not want to waste good yarn and flub it up bad..... For newbies, pay CLOSE attention to all your w&t's!!!!! Kinda hard to frog fun fur!! LOL.... But they are great and a lot of fun.... even for a newbie I got it done within a few days.

yeah!!! Theyre easy to do, just require a little counting, I'd wait to do the backs till my kids were napping or down for the night. You can see pics of mine from today's post on my blog, just click the purple sock on my sig.

When you do the back do you use both the wool and the funky yarn together?

thanks

Yes you do. You knit with them both at the same time, and it doesn't look quite right until you felt it. But once that wool shrinks up the funky yarn scrunches together and the ends poof out and it makes a fantastic, full, fuzzy back.

Thank you ADAllen,

I have been looking at all the lovely hedgehogs everyone has made and i feel inspired. They are great!

I have never felted before so this will be a first.

I can tell you that getting the pattern here is next to nil.

A very kind friend in America has kindly sent me a copy.

Thank you again for your kind advice.

No problem at all. I'm really excited about seeing your hedgehog. If he turns out half as cute as your elephants were, then he will bring all sorts of love and joy to someone's life.

Thanks so much. The elephants went down a treat with the girls at my sons party last week.

I would like to ask one more question, I have never felted before. The pattern states for 10 ply . Is that aran wool?
and does it have to be all wool. I have aran but when i look at the label it says 100% acrylic.

Thanks
