Amigurumi Hedgehog – Free crochet pattern



It gave me so much pleasure to translate this Amigurumi hedgehog pattern by 小师妹手作 (Handmade by little junior sister), because I am very fond of these cute little creatures! Last year we had one into the garden so we have been feeding it every night and have become great friends since then. If you would like to make yourself a little spiky friend that is still soft to touch and cuddle then try this free crochet hedgehog pattern.
