"That will do pig. That will do...." I knit this little cutie up on a rainy afternoon. I had no specific plan as to WHAT I was going to try to make. I had my size 4 needles and about tennis ball sized bit of yarn to play with. I just started knitting, enjoying my movie with an open and relaxed mind. A couple of hours later, I realized that I was holding a shape very similar to an adorable chunky guinea pig. So... I went with it! This pattern is a result of the extemporaneous knitting session. "Some Pig" Soft and cuddly....perfect for hugging. Add some catnip into the stuffing and watch your kitties "love" their new pet guinea pig. "Wee! Wee!! WEEEEE!!!" A great project for using those treasured remnants of hand painted yarns. ** 5 color pages of instructions include:** Step by step/ row by row instructions Fun & helpful color photos Stitch guide Shopping list Design notes & tips Pattern support from the designer via email or Craftsy messaging Dimensions: (approximate) About 4 inches tall About 7 inches long About 4 inches deep (from hip to hip) About 13" waistline.

It all started when I was pregnant with kid #3. I had been using a Winnie the POO (pun intended) diaper bag for 5 years strait and the thought of lugging it around for another 3 years WAS UNBEARABLE!!! At the same time, I noticed a woman with a cute over sized bag and asked about it. When I found out how it was made, I thought, I can do that. And I did! Then all of my neighbors wanted one. I am completely a self taught knitter. When I was an EXTREMELY BORED kid, I fashioned some needles from the dowels I pulled off of a couple of wooden coat hangers. I used an encyclopedia to learn the knit and purl stitches . I did not touch another pair of needles again until I was 34 and needed that diaper bag. Since then, I have sold hundreds of bags, over 2,000 patterns. Although I mostly self publish, my designs have been included in bestselling books, magazines and knitting calendars.
