Has anyone seen the Hedgehog mittens on the Morehouse Farm website?
I can't figure out the pattern used for the back of the mittens. Anyone seen this pattern? I don't want to spend $24 just to find out how they made the little spikes.
Here's the link.

Those do look interesting but I wouldn't buy it for that price without a bit more info to them. Maybe you could search for something similar on a free pattern site and save that money.

The spikes are actually bobbles. I saw this on another hedgehog pattern for a stuffed toy.

I found a little blog about the mittens and they are knitted bobbles.

Should be a cute pair of mittens for a child! :thumbup:

They are really cute but I can't quite justify the price either - maybe one of us will find something similar on the net

I can't tell for sure because the picture doesn't really show it, but I am wondering ifit is a type of popcorn stitch?

You can buy just the patterns from Morehouse Farm and not the expensive kits. I admit some of the patterns are a bit pricey, but so darn cute.

Those look like the '''raspberry''' stitches to me; There's a fun video on it, too. You work in the front, turn, work in the back, turn again......finish it up or move on.....

Flat stitches, though have to be converted to '''in the round''' work, so if this pattern is '''in the round''' and you can't convert (I can), make them in the flat row work mode, eh, or find the conversion how to/s?

Good luck!

Oh I agree that they are cute. I have looked at that pattern for my BFF. She teaches K and would be the hit of the class for sure.
But I also cannot afford the prices they ask on tht web site. Just toooooooo pricey for alot of us.

But they are cute and unique.

If anyone figures it out add my name to the list to send it to.

I'm with LEE1313. The website is expensive although I would love to do the pattern.

I am presently crocheting a pair of mittens that has a very similar pater all over except the cuff and thumb -- For me iit is a very simple combination of Treble and single crochet and then a row of single crochet..... not sure how to do that in a knit pattern???? what about a popcorn stitch or a bobble stitch???? Cute mitts - hope you can find what you need.

I agree with the earlier suggestion, think you knit for example
knit 4 stitches
turn purl 4 stitches
turn knit 4 stitches
turn purl 4 stitches
turn knit across until next group of stitches
hope this makes sense
shame we cant all club together and buy the pattern and share it amongst us that paid a percentage.

Sounds like a good idea

The pattern is the "Raspbrry Stitch" - The raspberry stitch calls for purl 3 together and knit 1, purl 1, knit 1 into the same stitch. you can see this on youTube.

Good Morning Major,

So if I just take a basic mitten pattern and use the raspberry st on the top side, not the palm, I should be able to make the Hedgehog??
I am sure I can find that st on Youtube.
Thanks for the idea. Just think it is so darn cute.
