OK, I'm a little confused...we are a big Pass the Pigs family (I've actually bought a case of them before- I like to give them as wedding shower gifts!)

But, these crocheted ones don't actually work for the game, do they? Aren't they too light to fall into the poses needed to get high scores?

I was wondering this myself! Would you make them heavier, like filling them with rice, or more squareish in shape! I MUST KNOW!

And yes, please post instructables so we all can have wee little piggy fun!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!! I just want to say that the piggies work perfectly, and I had a great evening last night playing crocheted pass the pigs! - I stuffed them firmly and made sure they were well balanced.
