Little Hedgehog from Atalier Marie-Lucienne

This free crochet hedgehog pattern uses popcorn stitch to create the spines. The yarn weight is not specified but as with most amigurumi, you need to choose a hook size that is smaller than the size recommended on the yarn label. The designer does not indicate the yarn weight used, but states that she has used a 3 mm hook; it is probably safe to assume that she has used a #4 / Medium / Worsted / Aran weight yarn.
