Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 16 sts and 20 rounds (about 4 inch) in sc to crochet a pig that measures approximately 5-1/2 inch tall. Remember to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. inc (increase) = 2 sc in next sc – 1 stitch increased dec (decrease) = draw up a loop in each of next 2 sc, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 stitch decreased Note: Work in continuous rounds of sc without joining unless otherwise indicated. Place a marker in first stitch of round and move up each round.
