Hedgehog Appliqué

By JC Designs
  This little guy would be great for applying to any projects, maybe as home decor or making them into fridge magnets.

  The hedgehog measures approx. 2..5” inches from its widest point but can vary based on yarn and hook size.

*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm
*Worsted weight yarn: brown and beige or any color of choice
*Stitch Marker to mark your rounds 
*Tapestry Needle
*Black Thread
*Small Bead (optional)

  There's no need to slip stitch and/or chain when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.
  Always work the first stitch to the new round where you slip stitch in the previous round.

BODY/HEAD (start with brown)
  Rnd 1: 6sc in magic ring, sl st into first sc (6)
  Rnd 2: 2hdc in each sc around, sl st into first hdc (12)
