pink crochet pig with blue saftey eyes
The amigurumi pig,  he's just so cute! And makes a great gift for those pig lovers...

 st = stitch
sc = single crochet
2tog = 2 stitches together
ch1 = chain one 
sl st = slip stitch


 Special notes: I worked in continuous rounds with a 3.75mm hook and worsted weight yarn. Have any questions or if you come across a mistake in the pattern please leave a message in the comment section below. 

HEAD:

*Remember if you use safety eyes to put them in before closing up the head. I used 7.5mm for this piggy


1) magic circle with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc then 2sc in next st (18)
4) 3sc in first st, 1sc in next 8st, 3sc in next st, 1sc in last 8st (22)

5) 1sc in each st
6) 2sc in first st, 1sc in next 10st, 2sc in next st, 1sc in last 10st (24)
7-10) 1sc in each st for 4 rows
11) 1sc in next 2st then 2tog (18)
12)1sc then 2tog (12)
 

 * stuff head while pushing the stuffing into the sides of the head as you stuff 

13) 2tog 6times (6)  Finish off


EARS:


*remember to ch1 at the end of every row before turning for rows 2-8

4)  2tog then 1sc  (2)
5-6) 1sc in each for 2 rows
7) 2tog (1)
8) 1sc then finish off leaving a long tail for sewing.

take the yarn tail you just cut and bring it to a corner on the chain you started the ear with. Knot it off in the corner and use the remaining piece to sew the ear to head. See photos below

I stretched and shaped the nose out a bit with my fingers making sure I was happy with the shape and also put nostrils in with black yarn  before sewing the nose onto the face.

    4. Thank you Katelyn! I'm so glad you find them helpful, that is my goal always :)

      I have a few more characters on the back burner. First I want to get a couple more follow along videos filmed for the patterns that have been posted already. A zebra sounds really cool... I'll keep it in mind.

  7. This is so cute. Any chance you'll be posting a YouTube video showing this pig?

    ReplyDelete
  8. You could actually use another Little Bigfoot video to follow along with. The body, head and limbs are all the same stitch count and shape. The only thing you'd do differently is the muzzle and ears. I hope that helps you out!

    1. Hi there! First of all, thank you very much, I'm so glad you like my patterns :) The Jelly Beans are a pay for pattern. I currently have 30 free patterns and 2 pay for patterns. The 2 pay for patterns are available as e-books on amazon or as PDF patterns through Ravelry, Craftsy or Etsy. You can find those links if you scroll a little ways up this page and look on the right-hand side.

      Thanks for the message!

    2. Hi there, so sorry but I can not do that right now. I only have patterns for sale at this time because I am strapped for time.
      I do have a row by row video for this bee if you want to give it a try, it takes you through every stitch.
      Hope it works out for you!

  14. Your little pig is gorgeous. I would like to use the print friendly button, but the only thing I than get are advertises. Also on your website I see a lot of advertises I don't like to see.
    So I am sorry that I can't use the nice pattern.

    And yes I already tryed to changed my account for Google to remove all these advertises. Notting changed.

    Dear greetings, Margaret

    1. When you click on the print friendly the pop up box will appear and then look in the top left hand corner of the pop up box, there is the print icon and click on that. The pattern should be sent to your printer.
      I've never heard my website was full of advertising from anyone before.. I have 3 ads on the site, one at the top, one at the side and one at the bottom. These ads help sustain a website where every pattern is free. I don't charge for patterns so the ads help pay for the yarn. I have over 60 free patterns and that's a whole lot of yarn, lol
      Hope that helped :)

  15. I'm making this little guy right now, and he's coming along nicely.
    I found an alternative way for Head Row 4. I like to space out my stitches evenly, and this looks just as nice.
    Alternate Version: 4) *3 sc, 2 sc in next st (* repeat 3 more times), 2 sc (22)
    Original: 4) 3sc in first st, 1sc in next 8st, 3sc in next st, 1sc in last 8st (22)

    Thank you for creating him. :-)

  16. I love your crochet animals I just wanted to tell you the problem I had I was going by the written pattern and when site was diwn last night I ended up going to video but the body and head a one piece in video and seperate here it got a little confusing just wanted to tell you the difference I found thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. thank you... yes, that would be confusing but that's because you were doing 2 different patterns. This is a tiny pig I designed in 2012. I redesigned this pattern in 2014, the difference being the head and body are now one piece and the overall pig is larger. I also have one other pig pattern called the dress up pig and they are even larger and a completely different pattern altogether.
      Click here for the revised Little Bigfoot Pig You can also scroll up, look on the right hand side you'll see a list of labels, click on "pig" and all my posts with pig patterns in them will pop up.
