The best part of this cozy critter is the mock popcorn stitches.  A regular old popcorn stitch with Super bulky yarn and Q hook is definitely not a stitch I wanted to use for an entire blanket.  The Mock popcorn using only chain stitches and its super easy to make.  I include a video tutorial with pattern purchase that will walk you through the stitch pattern plus the entire child size hood.

Our Hedgehog pattern includes little paw shaped mitts! Perfect to keep little hands toasty warm.

Kids can’t have all the fun so all my blankets include Adult sizes too!  When it’s time to stash your blanket away fold it up and tuck in the hood for a cute pillow to display.

To get started you’ll need to order some yarn.  These blankets are made using 1 strand of Super Bulky.  Sprightly Yarns Super Bulky Acrylic Wool is super thick so 1 strand is all you’ll need for a bulky cozy blanket.  Sprightly is Exclusive to Craftsy and can only be purchased online.

The best alternative to this yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.  You can purchase online here or find in many local stores.

For those of you that love Bernat Blanket yarn it will work great too!

You’ll also need a 16mm crochet hook to whip you through this design.  I love Susan Bates hooks!  This is my favourite hook that I use for all my Bulky & Quick blankets.

Bulky Q Hook

For all the little details you’ll also need a 9mm crochet hook.  Also some scrap worsted weight yarn in black and white.  Buttons are used for the eyes to give this collection a rustic and old fashioned look.  25-30mm size is just Cream.  I prefer a 4 hole button to get the X shape when you sew them on the hood.


I hope you enjoy making this design!  You can grab the pattern HERE.
