Hedgehog Love Scarf- Free Pattern Notes!

Remember this post, where my pretty, newly-knit hat was upstaged by my super cute hedgehog scarf?

Well, I finally got around to writing up the pattern notes. Because hey, gotta share the hedgehog love.

But there are disclaimers here- I didn't knit the cute scarf that's in these pictures, this is the store bought scarf that Guy got for me from Primark, a chain store in the UK. You can't buy it any more, so I thought that at least other knitters could knit their own, if they were so inclined. So I wrote out the notes, and charted out the design. A machine made knit is always quite different once interpreted by a knitter, and that is the case for the ribbed edging- which is clearly machine made and seamed on. In the pattern notes I wrote the edging to be seed stitch, to make it easier to knit. But if you want to pick up a gazillion stitches to knit on the ribbing, or seam it on, by all means, go for it.

It's bound to be a wonderful gift for my firends' wedding anniversary as they are both dreaming of having hedgehogs when they finally have their own garden! I should think about it... :) Thank you so much! It's so cute :)

I love that I get a peek into your daily life via this blog and that I know that Bruce Quillis (may he R.I.P.) is reason you love this scarf. The scarf is adorable, even for those of us who don't have a Bruce in our lives. And I appreciate the pattern. Will be making this for next winter!!!

Julie, I am so glad you put this together! It will be a great gift for my niece! Can you give us a peek of the reverse side? I was wondering if it's worth maybe knitting a lining...

Oh, my goodness! Thanks so much for this free pattern. I plan to knit this for my daughter, who is dying for a hedgehgog. Unfortunately, we cannot find a reputable breeder up here and she "settled" for a kitty. :o)
Now, she'll be able to have her own hedgehog who can go with her everywhere!!

Hi Julie! Thank you for working out the pattern and chart. Instead of a scarf, I may make a cushion cover, with the 2 hedgehogs and lots of hearts. It will be a perfect gift for my niece in college. And maybe a few other friends. Many thanks again.
