Hey everyone...I've had a couple of people ask me this now so I guess I fumbled a lot of these instructions...the pig is worked in a round. All of him. Except for the ears and tail and wings. I'm sorry that wasn't clear before....=)


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.

I made this piggy a couple days ago.  Cheesy Mine doesn't look as good as the original, though. I'll upload a pic later.

Here he is. I made him with waaay too small a hook. A B hook, actually.  Roll Eyes There's a few mistakes, but overall I'm happy with him. He doesn't look as good as the first one, but he's the first animal thingie I've crocheted.

I made one - of course I can never just stick with a pattern, I always have to come up with innovations. My biggest personal pet peeve is sewing things on - so I picked up stitches for the ears. Probably would try to do the same with the legs next time. I spent about five minutes trying to figure out which way the wings went on - some days I feel like a complete idiot!
So anyway - we found a wool-ease white with sparkly in it - my son said the wings were for flying and the sparkly was for the magic! I used a wool-ease dusty rose I think. The eyes are a potholder loop cut and tied in a square knot. And my favorite innovation - I stuffed it with rice! I took an old sock, filled it with rice and tied a big knot in it before I finished crocheting it shut. Benjamin, my 6 yr old, has some anger issues and he decided that he could punch the pig or throw it on the ground when he gets angry!
Not to mention, you could microwave it to warm it up.
I couldn't find my smaller crochet hook so I doubled the yarn with an H hook - really stiff and would not necessarily have needed to be stuffed!
ok - how do I get the picture in - I just tried the copy and paste and craftster won't give me the paste option - &^(*^)%^$(^&(*)^%

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
