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. For an ADVENTUROUS BEGINNER knitter because the Pig is knitted entirely flat on straight needles with only a few increases and the short row shaping is fully explained in the pattern.

I'm an expat Brit living in the San Francisco Bay Area and a stay at home Mum. I'm also an avid knitter with many ideas for interesting designs using unusual construction and techniques. My Mum taught me to knit when I was 7 years old, I thought I'd forgotten it but when I came back to knitting 7 years ago I discovered that it was all still there. I love to knit in 3D and around corners, so I use knitting in the round and short row shaping in many of my designs. I'd also prefer not to sew lots of pieces together, so my knitted toy designs have as little sewing as I can manage.
