I'm wanting to make a stuffed crochet pig.  I am a beginner crocheter but can follow patterns with ease thanks to a class I'm finishing up.  I want the pig to be about 10 inches because I would crochet a jersey for the pig to wear.  I'm trying to make a doll of the mascot for our local hockey team.  I saw one tutorial for a pig, but not sure it would be big enough. 

I'd appreciate any links to pig tutorials that are easy and on the larger side.

Thanks for your help!

You could always look on http://www.ravelry.com or http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com If you can't find a pattern that's big enough use a heavier yarn (most patterns would be for worsted, use bulky) and go up a few hook sizes. This will make your finished product larger.

They are all free patterns from the designers. The one from the happyyellowhouse sounds like the one best suited for what you want, you will have to get creative as it doesnt have hind legs, The amount of yarn says the pig is fairly good size, but if you use an E or F hook instead of the G you should get the size you want. Looking forward to seeing your completed mascot

Thanks for the ideas I'm either going to go with the happy yellow house or the one from coats and clark.  When I get this finished I'll be sure to post pictures!
