everkutz - don't be afraid -- just try this!  My advice?  when you are picking up stitches, use a small gauged dp (I used a size 4) and run it through the "bumps" along the edge.  Then knit those off the little needle -- this is an Elizabeth Zimmerman trick and it's freakin' awesome!  The crochet hook method is a good way to do it too.  I would say picking up the 77 stitches around the front to knit the back is the hardest part!  Also, mistakes in this beauty do not show up, so just go for it!  make yourself a hedgehog!  I have two more waiting to be felted!

I bow to your advanced knowledge of hedgies and vow to do my best. I think I've got some lime green and red muppet, now to match it up to yarn.  Tongue

Oh, I have this pattern! Your hedgehog is so cute (and I love hedgehogs). Now I really, really want to get started with it but, like you, I've unwisely overextended myself in the knitted gift department and I don't have time yet. Soon though, soon...
