So I was asked to make a mascot of our local AHL hockey team The Rockford Icehogs. The mascot is a pig in a jersey, so using this pattern http://happyyellowhouse.com/htm/pig.html
as inspiration I set out on my adventure. This is by far the most complicated crocheted item I have ever made, and I am quite pleased with the results. Enjoy the pics!

His cute little curly tail!
His hockey skates, MY FAVORITE part by far!
Close up of jersey. The jersey was made from a newborn, long sleeve onsie. I had to hem it twice cause the first time it was too short. Then I painted it to reflect what the actual team jerseys look like.

Thanks for looking! C&C welcome!
