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!

Thanks for inspiring me!

I know this is from a little while ago, but I'm new(-ish) to the site.  I love your Bacon Bit!  I'm from the Rockford area and have always wanted to go to an Ice Hogs game--is your mascot on display there?

That mascot was a gift for my BF, so unfortunately it's not on display.  However, the games are tons of fun!

Thanks for inspiring me!
