Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • single crochet two togther
  • work in continuous rounds

Pattern Description:

Who doesn't love the occasional stuffed toy? I love Amigurumi crochet toys. They are so fun to make, and you don't even have to know any fancy, high-level crochet techniques. Just the single crochet, the single crochet increase and decrease, and how to work in continuous rounds and you are good to go!

Back in March I took part in a Knit and Crochet Design Week and this pattern is the result of that week. I am so proud of my Piggy Banks. ^_^ I'm sure it's not hard to figure out how he got his name if you've seen his picture. He looks strikingly similar to a piggy bank, and believe it or not, that was not in my vision when I began working on him. I actually wanted to have him look more like he had "arms" and legs as opposed to four legs, but I ended up going with the non-cartoonish look.

I really hope you enjoy making this adorable little Piggy.
