One of the most admired people in my life is my grandfather. His passing still feels like yesterday, and I have been wanting to create something to remember him by. It seems odd that a pig would be that thing, but I suspect he would have just as much humour about it as I do.
As I was working out the pattern, I couldn't help but imagine this pig dressed in all manner of costume. For this reason, I'm including a basic super hero pattern at the end for Petje to wear.
Petje Pig can be created with any yarn. I used a bulky worsted for the pink model and a dk weight for the white model. When choosing your yarn, choose a hook one size smaller than the recommended hook size for that yarn. This will create a tighter weave, and make for a cleaner finish. I don't have a yardage or weight used for this pattern, as it will vary with your yarn choice. You will need a main colour and a small amount of a contrasting colour.
