Notes:

  • This project is worked in continuous rounds. You will need a stitch marker to mark your place. Place the stitch marker in the first stitch of each round, and move it every round to track your place.
  • TIP: if you have trouble sewing the parts to the pig using the yarn the pig was made in, you can use a similar color sewing thread and sewing needle to sew your pig together.
