Ysolda Smith PDF
Smith by Ysolda Teague is an adorable Hedgehog that can be knit in a variety of sizes by using different yarn weights. Although knitting anything with spikes is going to be a little fiddly, the construction method used is simple and fun. The body is worked in the round and the spikes are worked in separate pieces and joined to the body as you go, this also makes it easy to work the spikes in a darker color if desired. Smith was inspired by one of Ysolda's favorite childhood books, Smith the Lonely Hedgehog by Althea.
