I got it in my head one evening that I needed to make a pig ami that looked like a piggy bank. The rest is history! Hamlet is the first in a series of 6 farm animals designed with small hands in mind. My toddler daughter made off with the first one I made and carts him everywhere! I hope you'll enjoy this quick and easy project as much as I enjoyed writing the pattern! As with all of my patterns, permission is granted to sell finished items made using this pattern.

I'm the stay at home mom of a beautiful little girl. I've been knitting and crocheting for a long time but only REALLY got into it after I had my daughter. It's so much fun having a little one to make things for! I started making hats and small clothing items to show her off in. Soon people were asking me if I sold hats. Hats lead to stuffed toys and writing patterns for them! Pattern writing is such fun and I love how well received my designs are. Handmade is so special and I love being able to help people give gifts that will be loved for a long, long time.
