Knitted Hedgehogs Knitting & Crochet Patterns

  • In the Knitting Hedgehogs Pattern Booklet, Jean Greenhowe has produced a unique and fascinating new craft which transforms garter stitch strips into exciting creations


Product Description

  • This booklet introduces a group of irresistible characters - eight Greeting Hedgehogs
  • The Town Crier is splendidly dressed in authentic costume of the 18th century and the detail is exquisite
  • Suitable for any special event, he proclaims your greetings with style
  • Although his outfit may look complicated, Jean has used her clever 'illusion' techniques to make everything as simple as can be
  • For example, the knee breeches are knitted-in as part of the legs and the yellow waistcoat which appears to be a separate garment is, in fact, two knitted strips sewn inside the coat
  • The coat itself is made from just three pieces, the body and two sleeves
  • The shirt frills are also wonderfully easy to knit
  • In real life the postman delivers our greetings and gifts, so the Postman Hedgehog is suitable for almost any occasion or celebration
  • The mail bag can be used to contain a gift, chocolates or sweets
  • And here's another lovely idea
  • When the grandchildren come to call, they can open the mail bag to find a different surprise each time! What has the postman delivered today?For the grown-ups, items such as small gifts, book tokens, cinema and theatre tickets and restaurant vouchers can all be presented in a novel way
  • Postmen are especially welcome if they turn up as cute little Hedgehogs!Our adorable Clown Hedgehog comes with loving wishes and a party balloon for the greetings
  • There are two decorative accessories to choose from, a parcel or a bouquet of flowers
  • The heart motif is ideal for Valentine's day, a special anniversary or Mother's day
  • The Clown's frills are superbly constructed in rib, using two different sizes of knitting needles
  • The Sandwich Board Hedgehog's boards provide so much space that they could record most of the details for a wedding, the bride and groom, bridesmaids, best man, time, date, place and even a photograph of the happy day
  • A charming memento of an important occasion
  • Or for a sporting event or achievement, just think of the number of names which could be listed, together with the time and place of the venue
  • The Hedgehog then becomes a sporting trophy
  • Alternatively, in sandwich board tradition why not announce your greetings in very large letters!Where would you find a variety of lucky charms all in one place? On the Chimney Sweep Hedgehog! Traditionally, it used to be considered good luck if a sweep turned up at a wedding
  • So, our sweep himself is a lucky mascot for the big day
  • In addition, he has sprigs of white heather, a four-leaf clover, horseshoe and lucky red spider
  • You will love him to bits! His realistic sweeping brush and poles are made from drinking straws and you will no doubt enjoy marking on the sooty smudges with pencil
  • The chimney sweeps' soot sack can be used for a variety of gifts, or fill the sack with gold-wrapped chocolate coins for a delicious treat
  • This Hedgehog with a Santa Hat and a miniature Christmas Stocking is very special because he can be made as 'Santa's Hedgehog helper'
  • The little ones can write their requests to Santa and pop them in the stocking
  • The letter disappears overnight and is replaced with sweets, chocolate or a small toy and most exciting of all, a letter from Santa - magic! Just imagine the ond childhood memories of this character and the joy of receiving a personal letter from Santa, through his faithful assistant
  • This Hedgehog also makes a splendid Christmas gift or a seasonal decoration for the sideboard
  • Now, think new babies, toddler's birthdays, Christenings, keepsakes and congratulations
  • The Baby Girl and Boy Hedgehogs are the most perfect presents
  • They are so cute and cuddly you will have to knit one (or two) for yourself
