PATTERN INFORMATION
This little chap is the only pig in a blanket I
want to see this Christmas! Cosy and cute,
he’s the perfect festive friend.

INFO AND TIPS
Your piggy is worked in rounds, you do not join at the end of each round.
The number in brackets at the end of each round indicates the total number of stitches.
You can use your preferred method to start your amigurumi. I like to chain 2 and work into the
second stitch, but if you prefer a magic circle that will work just fine.
Use pink yarn for your pig, and use red and white for the blanket.

TAIL
CH7
Row 1. SC in second CH from hook and each CH to end (6)

ASSEMBLY
You may want to lightly stuff the legs and snout, but as the pieces are all so small, I didn’t
find it necessary. Use the photo as a guide throughout.
Sew the snout immediately below the eyes, resting on the belly,
Sew the ears to the side of the head over rounds 13-17.
Sew two legs to the body over rounds 8-10 and two over rounds 3-4.
Sew the tail to your pig’s bum over round 5.
