Young hedgehogs are born in litters ranging from one to eleven and remain with their mothers for only 4-7 weeks before heading out on their own. ♥
European Hedgehog is worked flat in two pieces (top and bottom) with a double strand of yarn worked in loop stitch on the top, and a single strand of yarn worked in stockinette stitch on the bottom. The tiny legs are worked separately, in-the-round, and seamed to the bottom. Stitches are picked up in the neck opening to begin the head. Finished hedgehogs are about 10” long and 6” wide.
