Hedgehog Granny Square - Woodland Afghan Series - Free Crochet Pattern


OR SCROLL DOWN FOR THE FREE PATTERN.



We just had our first snow fall here in Central Pennsylvania! That means we had a snow day and I had lots of time to hunker down and get crackin' on this afghan! I have two new squares to share with you - this little hedgehog and a bear that you can check out here.

Along with that, I have done the math to figure out how many squares I will need to make this afghan. It will be a bit larger than an average throw. Click here to check out all the details you need to follow along! I am planning about 10 different woodland critter/themed granny squares, so we're about half way there!

Any guesses as to what other critters I have on my list to create? I'll give you a hint on the next one I plan on sharing.. "What does the ___ say?!"
