A member at C'Ville here asked me if I had made a pig. (not sure if she wants me to use her name:) ) I told her no, but I could. This is what I came up with.
She has asked me to share it with everyone.

(it hasnt been tested..)
Do not sell this pattern!!

Enjoy!!

5-6) ch 1, sc in each sc around. (this is the last row of the snout.. Next is the body)

It is easiest to embroider snout at this point

18) ch 1, sc dec around (6 sc)
DO NOT FINISH OFF, but instead chain 8.
Slp stitch in 2nd chain from hook, and remaining chains, and first stitch of body.

THATS GREAT!!! My sister collects pigs, so I'll make this for her. Have you made a non-cute elephant? My husband would love an elephant that looks like it's charging! (Hint, hint???)

Again, just WOW! You should really think about submitting a bunch of your animals somewhere as kind of a set. I'd be surprised if you weren't able to sell them to AA or something!

(not sure if she wants me to use her name:) )

 

I don't mind!!!

 

She is just simply adorable. Thank you so much for working up a pattern. I have collected pigs since I was 13 (I am 43 now) and I have ALWAYS wanted a crocheted pig. Thank you ever so much for working this pattern up, and especially for sharing the pattern with everyone.

 

You simply are amazing!

 

What kind of yarn did you use?

 

When I tried to make a toy, I had so many holes. How do you make it so that the stuffing doesn't show, it has to be the yarn!

 

Anyway, it is just precious!!!

This is one GREAT PIG!!!!!! I LOVE your pattern - thanks so much for sharing!

 

I've never made a pig before and I'm really excited - I'm gonna try and make it for Ah Leah for her birthday since she made me that great white mouse or bear or whatever that thing is! (I haven't actually gotten it yet, but she'll be home from college soon, so I'd better start this pig!)

I LOVE YOUR PIG PATTERN!!!! SO SO CUTE!

 

Did you say you have a little cow pattern?

 

:lol I have been up since 3:30 this morning... A combo of allergies, and coming up with a pattern for a cow.

I wake up...and my brain starts going!

I am also thinking...how do you make an elephant that looks like it is charging! :lol

 

As for the yarn question "What kind of yarn did you use?"

I use Red Hears Super Saver in pink. Just keep your tension tight, you wont have holes. Also, dont over stuff. This will put pressure on the stitches and make it look like you have holes.

 

One more questions I have been asked more than once now..

"Where do you get the eyes you use?" Walmart actualy! Most fabrics stores have them. They are actually mixed in with the buttons. They are in a little plastic bag that is stapled to piece of tag board (at Walmart anyways)

Thank you all for the compliments!:blush

 

My DH suggested I make some 'boy' animals. Creepy crawly things...less cute.... I may just try!

Your little pig looks like the coin bank I had as a little girl! All that's missing is the slot!:)

Wow, you use RH Super Saver? The yarn looks so THICK. I will give it a try. And point taken on the stuffing. The directions I followed said "stuff firmly" - maybe I took that a bit too far.
