A very cute pig with a lot of personality. Penninah’s dress can be taken off but don’t worry, she’s wearing underwear!

Any item that you make from this pattern is yours to do with what you please, including selling, so long as you do not claim credit for the design.

If you do make items from this pattern to sell, I would like the pattern to be referenced - it stops people thinking you’re using it without permission and it’s handy for referral purposes - also, it’s good manners!

I ask that you refrain from selling the pattern itself, or from obtaining it from someone other than me.
