Hogwash, I say! Absolute hogwash! Which can only mean: wash things with a hog, right? This square pattern is versatile - make a little blanket square to add a pop to an afghan, or use cotton yarn to make a cleaning hog.

The pattern is fully written & charted for both options - using OINK or leaving a grid pattern instead. Some of my testers centered their pig, as mosaic knitting is forgiving and easy to play around with, once you get the hang of it. You’ll use each colour for two rows, using only knit & slip stitches.

This pattern calls for two yarn colours that contrast well, with about half your yardage being each colour.

This is block #7 in a series of nursery/baby themed squares that will be released March 2018 - May 2018.
