A round and cuddly Pig. He stands on his four legs through the power of yarn engineering and there isn't even any wire making his tail curl. This is a very popular pattern with pig lovers of all ages.

The pattern is available individually or as part of the eBook Around the Barnyard which also features the patterns for a duck, sheep, cow, mother hen and baby chick.
