Hey guys and gals! Here's my latest project, Monokuro Boo. In case you haven't heard of it, check here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monokuro_boo

I decided to not just make the pigs themselves, but also some of the items that they're often displayed with. Anyway, here are the pictures:







Also, this time I was smart enough to not take handwritten notes in my native language, but write them in English and on the computer from the get-go. So here they are! If you find any mistakes or don't understand something, let me know.

Monokuro Boo pattern

Skill level: Intermediate

Materials:

- One skein of black and one skein of white yarn for the pigs.
- (Optional) Oddments of yarn in light gray, light pink, red, yellow and dark green for the props.
- A hook appropriate to the weight of the yarn. I personally used fingering weight yarn and a 2.0 mm hook.
- Yarn needle.
- Polyfill.

Note: When switching colors, the last loop you pull through the stitch before the switch already has to be in the new color.

Piggies

Form the last leg in the same way as the others, reattach yarn, sc in next 3 st (24)
