Project info
Murphy the polar bear
Chichester the Pig by Helen Apocalypse
Needle and yarn
US 2 - 2.75 mm
Brown Sheep Nature Spun Fingering
This Is Knit in Dublin, Dublin

Yes, this is clearly not a pig!

I omitted the purl row and elongated the snout with an extra round, also did an extra round after the ears and before the front legs, then an extra round in the middle and two kfbs before the back legs for a fatter back end. After I pulled the yarn through the stitches at the end, i picked up 3 stitches and knitted a couple of rows in stockinette for a wee tail, that i sewed down over his bum.

Then I needle felted him a fish and crocheted him an ice-pool to go fishing in :)
