Special Pig

The Pillow Pal Piggy has been sitting in a folder on my computer, just waiting for someone to think he was a Special Pig...


Pigs have long been associated with being messy.. over indulgent and ... well, not always the best when it comes to pets - despite such famous pigs as Wilbur from Charlotte's Web fame. 
Although, from personal experience, I can tell you all of the stereotypes about pigs are FALSE.... these creatures are highly intelligent, very fastidious and genuinely affectionate to their human pets. 


So it was one of those patterns which I figured would be in my private collection and used when family or friends requested a piggy to cuddle with.  Imagine my surprise when I had clients and blog readers ask if I was going to make a Pillow Pal Pig!  I am proud to introduce you to the Pillow Pal Piggy - ready to squeal his way into your heart.

The 7th in the  Pillow Pal line,
contains 8 pages of pattern instructions, with detail oriented photographs to help you bring this 16 inch friend to life.  
To complete this pattern, it is expected that you already know crochet basics such as how to chain, crochet using slip stitches as well as single crochet stitches and how to change yarn colors. You should also know how to crochet in the round, crochet in rows, crochet using a “chain start”, crochet an opening closed, how to increase and decrease crochet stitches as well as how to make use of Back and/or Front Loops Only.
