5. Crochet Hedgehog Bookmark Pattern by Emma Crochet Design 4 U

This cute hedgehog pattern is unlike the others, as it is attached to a paper clip rather than being something that goes into your book. You will like the alternative of the cute critter sitting at the top of the book, as it eliminates some of the bulkiness of having a crochet piece inside your pages if your book pages are on the thinner side.

8. Roly, The Hedgehog Crochet Pattern by Airali Design

Roly is a cute little hedgehog who unlike his peers has great faith in all humans and animals. He is a curious hedgehog, he is not afraid and never feels the need to roll into a ball in self-defense so his spines have become so soft to be stroked!

This crochet amigurumi pattern includes 2 spines/spikes option: loop stitch and non-loop stitch. Feel free to pick the spine option you like the most!

9. Hedgehog With Hoglet Crochet Pattern by Lau Loves Crochet

With this design, the adult hedgehog’s body has an internal pocket which opens to reveal the baby hoglet inside! Newborn hoglets are born without any quills and then soft cream quills appear through their skin a few hours later –whether or not to add any quills to your hoglet is therefore entirely your choice.

The pattern includes the instructions for both the adult hedgehog, her baby hoglet and a caterpillar. Aren’t they so cute?

11. Free Crochet Hedgehog Pattern by Repeat Crafter Me

Cute, cuddly, and quick to crochet! One of our most favorite woodland creatures, the hedgehog can be crocheted is no time at all. This is a simple pattern but can also be customized. You could use the loop stitch to make the back “spikey” or use fur yarn instead.

12. Mini Hedgehogs Crochet Pattern by Sachiyo Ishii

Master bobble stitch to crochet these little sweethearts. Bedecked in flowers, Harry, Hanna and Hal are enjoying the warmer summer months! The pattern has cleverly used bobble stitch to create their ‘prickles’; it’s an easy technique to learn and is great for adding texture to the projects.

Finish off the trio with black bead eyes and use dark brown yarn from your stash to embroider their features.
