This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms. With this easy pattern, you can make a very special animal, Flims the soft and cuddly hedgehog.

Size of finished animal
Made with worsted weight yarn: 5 inch / 13 cm.

The crochet pattern contains
An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right. All my patterns are text edited for correct English and have been tested by an experienced crocheter before publishing.

Materials
For this hedgehog you’ll need worsted weight yarn and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook. You’ll need three colours of yarn, brown (1/4 of a 100 yard skein), camel (1/5) and murky brown (1/6). These quantities are estimates. For the eyes I’ve used 8 mm animal eyes and I needle felted a nose, but a crocheted or round safety nose will do too. You will also need fibrefill and pellets for a bit of extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads). Lopi colour numbers: 0053, 1400 and 1420.

Yarn
Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result.

Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.
