I've been working on the hedgehog pattern I showed you last week.
This pattern is the first of a new pattern set called woodland cuties. These patterns take the next step in amigurumi and use a new technique that I call over-working. Its a very simple process (when you get the hang of it) but it does take a bit more time than normal amigurumi making. I hope you'll agree its worth the extra time to get the depth in texture.
These hedgehogs have been in my bag with me all week and they are a big hit with everyone I've met. So much so in fact, that I've nearly lost them a few times, as most people don't want to give them back once they have had a cuddle. I don't blame them but I'm not giving them up with a fight :)
The only thing is I can't think of any names for them, so if anyone has any ideas let me know.
The pattern for these is now available in my etsy shop here
Update I've introduced a tutorial page for this pattern to help with the new stitch you can find it here
Next up is a very cute squirrel.........
I'm linking in with handmade monday :)
