Little oddment hedgehog
This quick and simple little pattern is great for using up oddments of leftover yarn and can be used as a pincushion or a toy. You can use any oddments and just need to match your needle size accordingly, for example I'd use 3.75mm needles with Aran weight, 3.25 / 3mm for DK weight and 2.75 / 2.25 mm for 4 ply (use a thinner needle size than recommended on the ball band in order to give a good finish after firmly stuffing.
You can mix yarn weights but it is better to use a thicker yarn for the body and a thinner one for the face and feet. If you don't have a tweed yarn you could try mixing 2 contrasting strands of leftover yarn to give a tweed effect.
You'll need approx 12m (14yds) for the main colour, a small amount for the face and feet, a small amount of black yarn for the eyes and nose and some stuffing of your choice.
The sample was knit with Rowan Tweed and Rowan Felted Tweed DK. Suggested substitute yarns are shown below. Use suitable scrap yarns if preferred.
