This pattern is for quick to knit novelty mittens featuring 3D baby hedgehogs.
The mittens are worked flat, on single point needles with the hedgehogs worked separately & stitched onto the finished mittens.
I have embellished my mittens with tiny leaf buttons to represent the hedgehogs snuffling through the Autumn leaves & used small beads for the eyes. However, if you are knitting for a younger child you may wish to omit the buttons & beads, in which case you could work the first two rows above the ribbing in a darker colour to represent the ground & embroider French knots for the eyes.
The hedgehogs are worked in a simple 4 row stitch pattern which is explained row by row.
