Crochet amigurumi pattern for Roly the Hedgehog.

To celebrate the launch of this new pattern, Roly the Hedgehog is 25% OFF until the 1st of July 2019 (no code needed).

Roly is a cute little hedgehog who unlike his peers has great faith in all humans and animals. He is a curious hedgehog, he is not afraid and never feels the need to roll into a ball in self-defense so his spines have become so soft to be stroked!

It is NOT a finished toy, it is a PDF pattern to make the amigurumi character with your hands, yarn and a crochet hook

This is a 9 pages PDF amigurumi which includes:

  • written instructions in English (US crochet terms) and Italian
  • step by step photos (more than 60 photos!)
  • size and gauge for 3 different yarn weights
  • two spine options (using loop stitch and not using it!)
  • loop stitch tutorial to learn how to do it!
