Pattern 12/12: Pig

This is an automated post.  A new pattern will be added every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from July 7 to Aug 2 and they will be available until I return on Aug 9.  I will also be able to answer comments and questions then.

– Cristy

A few notes:  I suggest making the head last, so you can add ears, eyes, etc as you go.  I places the eyes into the 12th and 16th stitches of the 7th row.  I also weighed the bottom of the body with plastic pellets to keep them standing up, but you may want something heavier (like a pebble or magnet).

Materials:

Red Heart Soft Yarn in Pink and Chocolate (I thought the pinks available for Red Heart Soft were too light, so I used Vanna’s Choice Baby in Pink Poodle.  Honestly, I can’t even tell the difference!)

3.0mm crochet hook

Scissors, Yarn Needle, Safety Eyes

Pattern:

The Basic Body and Head patterns are available here.

Pig Ears:

In Pink:

Ch 3.  1 sc in the second ch from hook, 1 hdc in the first ch.  Ch 1, cut yarn, pull through.  Use yarn ends to tie to head.

Pig Nose:

Beginning with a Magic Loop, ch 2. (The loop counts as the first ch.)

Round 1 – 6sc into the first ch. (6)

End with a slst in the next stitch for a more even appearance.  Cut the yarn and pull the tail through.  A length of scrap Chocolate yarn makes a cute embroidered nose.  Use the tail from the nose to seam it to the head.
