I got this pattern out of a book called “Cuddly Crochet” by Stacey Trock. You can also find this pattern HERE on ravelry. I love all of the animals she has in her book. They are so much fun to make. I finished up this pig in about 4 days.
I wish I could get the body parts together as well as Stacey Trock can. Mine always look a little funny once they are put together. I still haven’t figured out what I am doing wrong. I have a lot of trouble when it comes to putting the head on. It just doesn’t seem to sit on the body like I want it to. My goal is to eventually do one of these animals and have them look like the original. Wish me luck.
I used the Stylecraft Aran yarn to make this piggy. I used black and fondant for the colors. The stylecraft yarn is the perfect yarn to make animals. The colors are just so vibrant. You can purchase this yarn HERE.
I purchased my yarn on Deramores online, but it would take quite a while to get from England. I have since found a new store in the USA @ “loveknitting.com”. They have great prices and free shipping is offered on purchases of $50 or more.
