10.5 and 11 needle 24" circ. 10 yards contrasting wool for paws 165 yards for hedgehog and 100 yds novelty yarn for fur...then whatever you want to use for face features, embroidery floss or buttons or whatever. I have this memorized b/c I just dyed my yarn and began #1 for my kiddos for Christmas-you can see the pics of the yarn in my blog.

Thanks Jeanie, I've finished #1 & #2 and will finish # 3 today. Once they're felted I have to hide them at my Grandma's house to dry.
What'd y'all use to stuff them with while they dried?

My LYS has this pattern!
I just called and they will hold the last one for me! I can't wait to make a few of these for the grand kids! Is the pattern pretty straight forward? Will WOTA work for them? Everyones' finished Hedgies are sooo cute!
