H is for Hedgehog: Crochet Hedgehog Applique

Here is Day 8 of my 26 Days of Crochet Animal Alphabet Appliques!
H is for Hedgehog

Isn’t this the cutest little critter you ever did see?! I love hedgehogs almost as much as I love owls and I know this appliqué will be a hit no matter how you use it!

Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in chocolate and beige and a little bit of black for the eyes and nose
– Size G Crochet Hook (the bigger the hook the bigger the appliqué and vice versa)
– Tapestry needle
Abbreviations:
Magic Ring Tutorial
French Knot Tutorial
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC =  Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
TC = Triple Crochet

Hedgehog Applique Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 2 and make 8 DC in ring, pull tight but don’t join. You should have a half circle, chain 2, turn
Round 2: 2 DC in each stitch (16 DC), chain 1, continue to SC across bottom.
Round 3: Make picots in the next ten stitches (SC + chain 3+ slip stitch in the first chain), fasten off leaving long tail. Attach beige yarn to next stitch, chain 5, SC in first chain, Hdc in next, DC in next, TC in next, join to the last stitch in round 2.

Nose: chain 3, join to first ch. sew onto tip of head.
Make a French Knot for the eye.
