The design for Pippa the Pig grew from a simple variation on Judy’s Magic Cast-On that I use when knitting top-down caps for the newborns at my local hospital. I shared it with Judy, we decided it looked like a pig’s tail, and a challenge was issued: design a pattern for a stuffed pig, worked from the tush end up. What a humble beginning for a glorious creature!
