Your pig is AWESOME!! I just got this book from the library and wanted to make this pig as a gift for someone! Do you remember what kind of yarn you used? Did you use the same needle size?
Thanks! I used Brown Sheep brand Cotton Fleece (80% cotton, 20% Merino). I think it ended up being one and a half skeins, and the color was called "pink-a-boo" [ahem].
I used US 3 needles, but I tend to be a loose knitter, so you might want to swatch. I don't remember for sure, but I think I got the same gauge as in the pattern.
