More Hedgehog is here! More Hedgehog is here! This time in the super soft Merino DK, a 100% superwash merino, which features a tight twist — and the same amazing colors you’ve come to know and love. (Can you say speckles?!) Below are photos of some of the colors that we got in.
We may or may not have been (completely coincidentally) daydreaming about this yarn recently and dug into our faves to pull out our top three picks for projects. Take a look below!

Our top three project picks:
The beauty of this fun-to-knit reversible pattern from the ever-versatile Stephen West is the options that abound: Many colors or one? Scarf or cowl? Short or long?! Personally we’re torn between the amazing fringe and the easy wear of a cowl. The torture!
Get ready to move beyond the basic brioche flat-knit project and explore this sea of waves in Katrin Schubert’s Solena hat. This also gives you the opportunity to pair up two of your favorite contrasting Hedgehog colors. What will you pick?
Obviously, we’ve caught the brioche bug. What can we say? It’s addicting! This super squishy cowl, also from Stephen (we’re totes on a first-name basis), gives you the opportunity to play with color — and will be absolutely delicious in the Hedgehog DK. It calls for 2 skeins of your main color and about 55 yards for each strip (7 total). But you do you. Make it your own!
