I have made 4 of them so far last year and had been all adopted!:)
Question;what eyes and nose did you use?

Oh! Do you have pictures?  Doesn't it seem like whenever someone sees one of these guys they say "Make me one!"

The eyes are safety eyes from Joann.  At the start I was just using a larger eye for their noses, or needlefelting one one, and then I finally found the safety noses!  I found them all in the aisle with the doll making supplies.

From where does one get this adorable pattern?

It's called Fibertrends Huggable Hedgehog #228x.  I got mnie at www.yarn.com, but I dont see it there anymore.  Here's a link to what it looks like at Paradise Fibers.

I tried this yesterday & am really happy with the results.  I had to go all over town to find egg dye that hasn't been pulled from the shelves yet & finally found some at K-Mart.  I used Brown Sheep in Oatmeal & wasn't too sure how it would turn out but it is GORGEOUS!  I used the purple, blue and green (two tablets each) & I swear it looks like noro or some other much more expensive yarn.  It seemed to condition the mohair in the BS too so it wasn't quite so itchy. 

I bet the Brown Sheep is awesome dyed!  Do you have pictures? I went to your blog and didn't see them up yet!

Not a fan of fur/novelty yarns but for this I might have to change my opinion. Truly adorable!!

Very pretty!  I love how the stripes worked out too!

Thank you!  I love how self-striping yarn just does all the work for you Smiley

i feel so in love with this hat that i cast on a few hours ago and i'm already a few rows into the fair isle, its a really great pattern and i love the braided edge

Awesome!  I totally agree, it's a unique feature and I had never done an edging like that before.  I haven't seen any other finished versions of this hat, so I'm excited to see yours!

They are both beautiful!  How many skeins of the sws paton's did you use? 

I used exactly 2 skeins, after knitting the body I knit the two I-cords for the handles at the same time from opposite ends of my remaining skein and knit until it was all gone!  It worked out perfectly.  Cheesy

Wow, so so gorgeous!  (My fair isle always ends up tight and puckered.)  The pattern looks like so much fun!  Grin
It is really fun.  Once I started I couldn't put it down.  I knit on it almost constantly for two days!

Wow your first fair isle? It's so pretty! I can only hope mine will be half as good, when I get up the guts to try it. I'm so jealous!
Thanks, I just saw the pattern and instantly knew I had to have it.  The second my yarn arrived I jumped right in.  It was so fun!

wow! amazing. the colors are absolutely perfect. the pink sets it off really nicely. it's seriously seriously perfect. i can't get over it.
Thank you, I love the colors too. Pink, green, and white has to be one of my all time favorite combos Smiley

Thanks everyone for the encouragement, I guess "loosening up" is just something I'll have to get used to.  It's so hard not to pull on that extra yarn when it's right there!
