Kensington Hedgehog is a handy little pincushion. He is quick to knit, so you could make your own hedgehog in an afternoon.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the hedgehog, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colours at the end of the row (knitting stripes), and sew seams.


  • A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
  • DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight); less than 25g in each colour
  • Toy filling
  • Toy safety eyes (or you can use beads, buttons, or embroider the eyes in black yarn)
