Hedgehog pattern video

Hedgehog pattern
Hedgehog invasion

 

So I started making a video for the free sheep pattern but in accordance with my usual complete inability to follow a pattern…it turned into a hedgehog.  So here’s a video for a hedgehog.  They’re pretty quick and easy to make and before long you will have a veritable army of hedgehogs..although, apparently a collection of hedgehogs is ‘an array’.  An array of hedgehogs.  That sounds rubbish, I’m sticking with army.

So without further ado I present Hedgehog Part 1 – wherein a scrap of yarn is turned into a body of bobbles:

And part 2 where the creature comes to life – mwah haha evil array army of hedgehogs inbound!!

Oh, and here’s the pattern for those that prefer the traditional approach 🙂

Instructions
  1. Round 1

    Using larger hook and body colour:

    5sc in adjustable loop – do not tighten yet

    Make a bobble in the loop as follows:

    Yarn over and pull through the next sc as usual (3 on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through last 2 loops on hook (2 remaining on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through the same hole (4 on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through last 2 loops on hook (3 remaining on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through the same hole (5 on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through last 2 loops on hook (4 remaining on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through the same hole (6 on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through last 2 loops on hook (5 remaining on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through the same hole (7 on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through last 2 loops on hook (6 remaining on hook)

    Yarn over and pull through the 6 loops on the hook

    Make sure the bobble is pushed to the front every time

    Tighten the starting loop as usual = 5sc and  1 bobble


  2. Round 2

    2sc in each sc of the round (and the bobble) = 12sc

    Round 3

    (1sc, bobble) 6 times = 6sc and 6 bobbles

    Round 4

    2sc in each = 24sc

    Round 5

    (1sc, bobble) 12 times = 12sc and 12 bobbles

    Round 6

    24sc

    Round 7

    (1sc, bobble) 12 times = 12sc and 12 bobbles

    Round 8

    24sc

    Round 9

    (1sc, bobble) 12 times = 12sc and 12 bobbles

    **this is the end of the bobbles**

    Round 10

    1sc (to finish off the last bobble)

    Chain 2 (counts as 1HDC)

    23 HDC all the way round and slip stitch into top of chain 2

    Round 11

    Chain 1

    24sc in the row below from the back (to the left of the HDC post – but not the post) and change to nose colour yarn on the last sc catching the ends in the next round.

    Round 12

    Change to smaller hook

    24sc in the ‘inner’ of the two rounds (the sc from the last round)

    Round 13

    (2tog, 6sc) 3 times

    Round 14

    (2tog, 5sc) 3 times

    Round 15

    6sc, 2tog, 4sc, dec, 4sc

    Round 16

    6sc, 2tog, 3sc, decrease, 3sc

    Round 17

    6sc, 2tog, 2sc, decrease,2sc

    Round 18

    6sc, 2tog, 1sc, decrease,1sc

    Round 19

    6sc, 2tog, 2tog

    Round 20

    6sc, 2tog

    Round 21

    2tog once more then finish up by cutting the yarn and threading onto a needle, picking up the outer strand of the last 6sc and pulling up gently. Pull the end through the body if your needle is long enough, wiggle it around and pull up until the nose is the shape you want and secure tightly.

    Embroider a nose and eyes with black or brown wool and you’re done. Huzzah another recruit!
