Pig Knitting Pattern and a Giveaway

I just wanted to share my knew little treasure with you:)
I really think her name should be Truffles, she is bulky and plump just like a pig should be and she is a nice size to carry around 5.5 inches tall 8 inches from tail to snout. I have knitted her in a hand spun yarn, about an aran to chunky weight.
Her pattern is available on my Mamma4earth Etsy Shop.
and
For immediate download in my Ravelry shop.
This pattern is quite easy, it is knitted in stocking stitch, with increasing and decreasing. I have knitted the tail as an i-cord. I have knitted with size 4mm straight needles and this pattern is flat. If you ever need to ask me a question about the pattern, I am just an email away.

The eyes have been needle felted on with fleece and a felting needle and she even has a curly tail!

    Linda, It’s agreed, everyone loves your Ms. Truffles, myself included too! I’m fairly new to knitting and have never tried to knit a softie, but now Ms. Truffles is bound to make quite a few of us into successful pig knitters. I love the beautiful curves on her body, and al this isl accomplished with using knitting increases and decreases, pure genius! Thanks for the giveaway chance.

    Very cute! I knitted some pig mittens for my daughter’s birthday Thursday and was pointed here by a friend. My daughter said, “oh, you have to knit me a pig”, so I hope I win.

    If you want to see her mittens, Piggy and Wiggy, check out my Ravelry site – motezuma.

    Lovely pig. Will have to make one for a good friend. Thank you for helping me with great ideas for presents!

  57. K November 29, 2011 at 6:15 pm #

    In my greed. I enter. I love this pig. Oh, another thing in the queue – delights, wonders and FAT things. I don’t knit two legged guys. I am in love with 4. And this guy is SUCH a satisfying shape. But I’ll get him even if I lose (which is probably).

  58. barb November 29, 2011 at 9:33 pm #

    LOL! My granddaughter keeps having me check and see if the winners have been chosen. She wants me to get started on this piglet. Needless to say, we will have this pattern one way or the other.

  59. tamsininamania November 29, 2011 at 9:44 pm #

    I love this little piggy too. cheers tamsin, tamsinadams@bigpond.com
