free crochet pig pattern


Free crochet pig pattern

Abbreviations | FLO = front loop only | BLO = back loop only | ch = chain | ss = slip stitch | dc = double crochet | 
st/sts = stitch/stitches | dc2tog = dc two stitches together/decrease |

Using light pink DK(double knitting) weight wool and a 2.5mm hook (but a 3mm or 3.5mm will do the job too)


Body
Round 1: ch2, 6dc in 1st ch made (join with ss) {or alternatively magic circle/ring of 6dc}
Round 2: ch1, 2dc in each st around (12dc) (join with ss)
Round 3: ch1, {FLO} 1dc in each st around (12dc) (join with ss)
Round 4: ch1, 1dc in each st around (12dc) (join with ss)
Round 5: ch1, {BLO}*1dc in nxt st, 2dc in nxt st* repeat 6 times (18dc) (DON'T JOIN WITH SS, just keep working around in a spiral from this point, and be careful that your next dc goes into the first dc of this round and not the ch you made at the start )
Round 6: {BLO}*1dc in nxt 2 sts, 2dc in nxt st* repeat 6 times (24dc) 
Round 7: *1dc in nxt 3 sts, 2dc in nxt st* repeat 6 times (30dc) 
Round 8: *1dc in nxt 4 sts, 2dc in nxt st* repeat 6 times (36dc) 
Round 9-10: 1dc in each st around (36dc) 
insert safety eyes (if you don't have any, you can always sew on some small buttons at the end)
Round 11-23: 1dc in each st around (36dc)
(the amount of the previous rounds is what I worked it out to be with a 2.5mm hook, but I crochet quite tightly, basically just keep doing 1 dc into each st around until the length of your pig looks about the right proportions, if you think it needs more or less rounds then go for it)
Round 24: *1dc in nxt 4 sts, dc2tog in nxt st* repeat 6 times (30dc) 
Round 25: *1dc in nxt 3 sts, dc2tog in nxt st* repeat 6 times (24dc) 
Round 26: *1dc in nxt 2 sts, dc2tog in nxt st* repeat 6 times (18dc)
Round 27: *1dc in nxt st, dc2tog in nxt st* repeat 6 times (12dc)  
stuff pig relatively firmly, insert a little bit first to make sure some stuffing goes in the pigs snout, then fill the rest of the body
Round 28: *dc2tog* repeat 6 times (6dc) 
fasten off and leave a long tail, weave in and out of each stitch and pull tightly, this should close up the hole. Weave in end

Feet (make 4)

Round 1: ch2, 6dc in 1st ch made (join with ss)
Round 2: ch1, 2dc in each st around (12dc) (join with ss)
Round 3: ch1, {FLO} 1dc in each st around (12dc) (DON'T JOIN WITH SS)
Round 4-6: 1dc in each st around (12dc)
finish with a ss in the next st, fasten off and leave a long tail

Ears (make 2)
Round 1: ch2, 6dc in 1st ch made (join with ss)
Round 2: ss in nxt 2 sts, 3dc in nxt st, ss in nxt 2 sts, leave last st unworked.
fasten off and leave a long tail

Tail
ch17, 1dc in 2nd ch from hook, *dc2tog* repeat 7 times, dc in last ch. (it should become a spiral as you do the dc2togs)
fasten off and leave a long tail

Assembly.
Stuff and position the feet on the underside of the body (opposite the side where you positioned your eyes), I'd suggest pinning the feet into position first, and then sew them on with the tails you left.
Sew the tail onto the back of the pig (position it slightly up from the middle, like in the picture below), and sew the two ears on the top of the pigs head. Weave in any remaining loose ends.
Using some embroidery thread or thin wool in a darker shade of pink, sew on two little nostrils onto the pigs snout (although this isn't really 100% necessary, its still pretty cute without, but your pig won't be any good at finding truffles)

Using light brown/beige double knitting weight wool
Round 1 : ch2, 4dc in 1st ch made (or magic ring/adjustable loop of 4dc)
Round 2 : *dc in nxt st, 2dc in nxt st* x2 (6dc)
Round 3 : *dc in nxt 2 sts, 2dc in nxt st* x2 (8dc)

Round 7 : dc in each st around (12dc)
Round 8 : *dc in nxt 5 sts, 2dc in nxt st* x2 (14dc)
Round 9 : dc in next 2 sts, 2dc in each of nxt 4 sts, dc in nxt 8 sts (18dc)
Change colour to dark brown on last st of round 9
Round 10 : FLO 2dc in nxt st, *dc in nxt st, 2dc in nxt st* x2, dc in nxt st, *dc in nxt st, 2dc in nxt st* x3, ss in nxt 6 sts (18dc+6ss=24sts)
Round 11 : dc in nxt st, 2dc in nxt st, *dc in nxt 2 sts, 2dc in nxt st* x5, dc in nxt 7 sts (30dc) - for neater results dc in same places as where you did the slip stitches of last round, going over the slip stitches. If you try to dc into the slip stitches you will end up with a line of the light brown appearing underneath.
Round 12 : dc in nxt 2 sts, 2dc in nxt st *dc in nxt 3 sts, 2dc in nxt st* x2, dc in nxt 2 sts, *2dc in nxt st, dc in nxt 3 sts* x2, 2dc in nxt st, dc in nxt 8 sts (36dc)
This is a good point to add safety eyes
Round 13 – 15 : dc in each st around
Round 16 : dc in nxt 3 sts, 2dc in nxt st, dc in nxt 22 sts, 2dc in nxt st, dc in nxt 9 sts (38dc)
Round 17 – 21 : dc in each st around (38dc)

Round 23 : *dc in nxt 4 sts, dc2tog* x6 (30dc)
At this point stuff with toy filling, the firmer you stuff, the fatter your hedgehog!
Round 24 : *dc in nxt 3 sts, dc2tog* x6 (24dc)
Round 25 : *dc in nxt 2 sts, dc2tog* x6 (18dc)
Round 26 : *dc in nxt 1 sts, dc2tog* x6 (12dc)
Round 27 : *dc2tog* x6 (6dc)
Fasten off leaving a longish tail, weave in and out of last 6 sts, pull tightly to close the hole, then weave in the tail

Taking a piece of black yarn and a wool needle, sew on a nose, do this slightly upwards on the tip, it should make his snout appear to curve up more
Tip – I often leave a tail when I start the nose, and once its looking about right, wrap the tail and the yarn you’ve been sewing with around the nose you just made, pull tightly and tie the two ends together. This will make is ‘bobble up’ a bit more. Then thread your needle through and bring it out a bit further down underneath the snout, cut yarn and give the snout a wiggle, the yarn should disappear inside and in theory doesn’t have much chance of coming out/loosening 


Abbreviations
FLO = front loop only
Dc =double crochet
Ss = slip stitch
St/sts = stitch/stitches
Dc2tog = dc 2 sts together/decrease

for Americans, just remember that in UK terminology dc = sc
