CROCHET PATTERN for Hedgie, Super Cute Amigurumi Hedgehog, Challenging Master Class in Crochet!
We seem to favor obvious names around here. We call all the cats "Kitty" and we call all the octos "Octo". And we're calling the new lil hedgehog "Hedgie!" There's something about a short simple name for a cute charming plushy! It's almost as though the simple name leaves each plushy room to define themselves in whatever kooky way they want to! When I have a show coming up, my crochet room is always full of octos. Although I may call them all "Octo", each one is his own unique creature, and each one defines the name differently. I literally have a collection of stuffed animals in my bedroom that I lovingly refer to as the "Sam Collection!" Every single one of them is named Sam! And each Sam is distinct, unprecedented and adored by me! Each one is my favorite! This phenomenon is both paradox and fact! Now you can crochet all the Hedgies you'd like, and each Hedgie will redefine what it means to be a cute kawaii crochet hedgehog! Happy stitching!
This design endeavors to take the art of amigurumi into unchartered territory! If you've thoroughly enjoyed the concept of ball shapes that attach to make animals and foods, you might be ready for my crochet Master Class! The idea for the atypical construction of this amigurumi has been simmering in my mind for quite some time. Endless trial and error, the patience of the eternal, the inspiration of the muse, and even a little divine intervention, all came together to make this rather odd amigurumi possible! He is thoughtfully and lovingly made, right down to the three little tufts of quills that fall over his forehead! Try him with me! Become an amigurumi Master!
