A member at C'Ville here asked me if I had made a pig. (not sure if she wants me to use her name:) ) I told her no, but I could. This is what I came up with.
She has asked me to share it with everyone.
(it hasnt been tested..)
Do not sell this pattern!!
Snout and body of pig are joined at the end of each round with a slip stitch.
With F hook
Starting at pigs snout,
1) 5 sc in 2nd chain from hook.
2) ch 1, 2 sc in each sc around (10 sc)
3) ch 1, (2 sc in first sc, sc in next sc) repeat around (15sc)
4) IN BACK LOOPS ONLY.. Sc in each sc around
5-6) ch 1, sc in each sc around. (this is the last row of the snout.. Next is the body)
7) ch 1, 2 sc in each sc around (30 sc)
It is easiest to embroider snout at this point
8-14) ch 1, sc in each sc around
15) ch 1, (sc dec, sc in next 3 sc) repeat around (24 sc)
16) ch 1, (sc dec, sc in next 2 sc) repeat around (18 sc)
17) ch 1, (sc dec, sc in next sc) repeat around (12 sc)
Stuff a bit more
18) ch 1, sc dec around (6 sc)
DO NOT FINISH OFF, but instead chain 8.
Slp stitch in 2nd chain from hook, and remaining chains, and first stitch of body.
FO leaving long tail. Use long tail to close hole around pigs tail.
With G hook
Ears (make 2)
Ears are done in rows
Leaving long beginning tail, Chain 7
1) Sc in 2nd chain from hook, sc in remaining chains (6 sc)
2) ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across
3) Ch 1, turn, sc dec, sc in next 2 sc, sc dec. (4 sc)
4) Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across
5) Ch 1, turn, sc dec across (2 sc)
6) Ch 1, turn, sc dec. (1 sc)
FO leaving long enough tail to weave back into ear.
Use the end just finished off to weave back through last stitch made. This will help define the tip of the ear. Weave in lose end then.
Using long beginning tail, sew ears onto pig, folding in a bit on each side to resemble a pigs ear. Repeat with other ear.
