My name is CheVon Bell and I absolutely LOVE to crochet! I crochet amigurumi (which is a fancy way of saying crocheted stuffed animal), sweaters, hats, and anything else that comes to mind. I've done sewing, I've tried knitting; but for me, crochet is the way to go!
I began with knitting when I was pregnant with child number two, but found I didn't have the patience for it. Then I turned to crochet and never turned back. Now, three years later, I am working trucking right along. ^_^
Also, and by no means secondary to crochet, I have 3 lovey daughters--3, 5 and 9 years old--and a wonderfully supportive husband. ^_^
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.
