A Little Piggy by Amelia Beebe

A Little Piggy

September 2008
Aran (8 wpi) ?
3.5 mm (E)
This pattern is available for free.

Worsted Weight Yarn in pink (I used Redheart Supersaver yarn)
Size E hook
Polyfil (stuffing)
Yarn needle
Permanent Marker (non toxic)

Finish Size: 1 ½”h x 1 ½”w The piggy is 3 ½” in length counting the tail.

Different Stitches:
Picot- Ch2, sc in 2nd chain from hook.
Hdc Popcorn St- 5 hdc in next st, take hook out of loop. Place hook into loops of first hdc made and then back in prior loop. Pull loop through loops of first hdc and ch 1.


When doing my sc decreases, sometimes I do them in the front loops only. It helps minimize the hole sometimes left when decreasing.

Sometimes when I’m working in back loops only, I like to go in both back loops. Diagram: Here
