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,
Chain 2
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.

Pigs Feet (make 4)
Feet are done in a continous round. You do not join at the end of each round.
Chain 2
1) 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook
2-4) sc in each sc around
Fasten off

Do not close foot hole, sew onto bottom of pig.

Weave in any loose ends you have.

Sew or embroider eyes onto pig.

You are done!

THATS GREAT!!! My sister collects pigs, so I'll make this for her. Have you made a non-cute elephant? My husband would love an elephant that looks like it's charging! (Hint, hint???)

Again, just WOW! You should really think about submitting a bunch of your animals somewhere as kind of a set. I'd be surprised if you weren't able to sell them to AA or something!

(not sure if she wants me to use her name:) )

I don't mind!!!

She is just simply adorable. Thank you so much for working up a pattern. I have collected pigs since I was 13 (I am 43 now) and I have ALWAYS wanted a crocheted pig. Thank you ever so much for working this pattern up, and especially for sharing the pattern with everyone.

You simply are amazing!

What kind of yarn did you use?

When I tried to make a toy, I had so many holes. How do you make it so that the stuffing doesn't show, it has to be the yarn!

Anyway, it is just precious!!!

Did you say you have a little cow pattern?

This is one GREAT PIG!!!!!! I LOVE your pattern - thanks so much for sharing!

I've never made a pig before and I'm really excited - I'm gonna try and make it for Ah Leah for her birthday since she made me that great white mouse or bear or whatever that thing is! (I haven't actually gotten it yet, but she'll be home from college soon, so I'd better start this pig!)
