So there, all you who doubted the aerial capabilities of the porcine race. *EDIT* I just added a new row (3.1) to try and help the people who say the nose is too small. I hope it helps.

How to make the flying pig:

Worsted weight, F hook.

Starting with nose:

1. Ch 2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
2. 2 sc in each sc.
3. 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc.
3.1 (added to help the nose problem) 1 sc in sc, decrease over next two sc.
4. 2 sc in each sc.
5. 2 sc in each sc.
6. *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* around.
7-15. 1 sc in each sc around for 8 rows.
16. *1 sc in next 6 sc, 1 sc decrease in next sc* around.
17. Repeat row 16.
18. Repeat row 16.
19. *1 sc in next 2 sc, sc decrease in  next sc* around.

Do this until the hole is small, stuff piggy, continue decreasing until the hole is shut.

Ears: Ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in each of next 2 chs. Finish off and sew to head.

Wings:
Ch4. Turn and do 3 sc on the chain. Ch 1 turn.
3 sc, ch 3, turn, 3 sc on chain. 3 hdc on next 3 sc. ch 1 turn.
3 sc, ch 4. Turn, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc in ch, 3 hdc in scs. ch 1, turn.
4 sc in hdcs.  Ch 5, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc in ch, 3 hdc in scs. Ch 3 .
*Work 4 dc decreases down the edge of wing opposite the feaher ends. Ch 3, turn, repeat from * once. Fasten off.
Sew to body just behind ears.

Feet: Ch 2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each sc around for two rows. Fasten off, stuff, sew to body.

Tail: Ch 7, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch IN ONE LOOP ONLY.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Oh, he didn't even take an hour, believe me. Make yourself a bundle of piggy joy before you lose your holiday fizz. =)

FABULOSO!  Whenever someone says or does something totally out of character I feign great shock and say, "Let me look out the window and see if pigs are flying"---so I will have to be making one of these for myself.  Great job, and thank you thank you for posting the pattern.
