This is Cassandra Bibler’s “Hedgehog Hotpad.” I had a great time knitting these guys and sort of just couldn’t stop.


This blue and red set is knit in Knit Picks Dishie. I fairly quickly decided I wanted to try another set, this time in Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream.


They’d likely work as hotpads, as Bibler intends. But I gift them just as dishcloths. Two may already be seeing duty as baby body washers.

Sometimes these clever mosaic cloths are just what the doctor ordered for a knitter. It’s fun to watch the critter emerge. They knit up quickly. And you end up with a useful item. Plus, in the case of these hedgehogs, they are way cute!
