Little Echidna

Echidnas are egg-laying mammals that live in Australia and New Guinea.

This pattern has step-by-step instructions and two pages of colour photos showing some knitting up and techniques of making the Echidna and the finishing embroidery of eyes and spikes on the Echidna.

This Echidna is quick to knit up. Make a whole family and gift them to someone special. They will have endless hours of fun, as do my own children.
