This Special Edition Mini HooterNinnie has been crocheted as a little love token for your Valentineâ€¦
This is a very teeny weeny HooterNinnie and is a lot like our lovely woodland hedgehogs but not so spiky! At just 7cm from nose to bottom it's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or look lovingly at you from somewhere close by.
It has been crocheted using the Japanese style, Amigurumi. This method is very neat as it is worked in a spiral - there are no seams, just a hole at the end of each piece that can be stuffed and then sewn closed.
Three yarns have been used - a pale flecked aran for the face and two black fun yarns - eyelash and ribbon - for the body. It has black bead eyes, a sparkly red heart shaped felt nose and is stuffed with polyfil.
