This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

In this mystery crochet along you will be crocheting a piggy. Your finished piggy will measure around 8 inches from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet. Your size will vary depending on the yarn you choose, the crochet hook you choose, and your tension while crocheting. I used worsted weight yarn and a size D hook to get my piggy to this size.
