We never had to worry about Pegilop fitting in with her new friends because she is a social butterfly. Her intelligence and attention to detail have brought the Amigurumi community closer than ever before. Her ears are always perked up, which makes her an excellent listener.

Crochet Pig’s Characteristic

Standing at 11″ tall, this Amigurumi Pig is the perfect huggable stuffed animal. Simply stuff your pig tightly to give it a good shape!

Besides having some artistic dirt spots, Pegilop, the crochet pig has a pink-colored body with unique grey-colored hooves. Pig hooves, like human nails, need regular trimming and special care to avoid overgrowth and lameness. It’s important because their cloven hooves keep them balanced as they walk through their favorite mud pool.

Crochet Skill Level

This crochet pig amigurumi is suitable for intermediate-skilled crocheters; however, avid beginners should be able to crochet this cute pig as well. Depending on how well-versed you are in crochet, the project may take roughly two days to complete. Remember, it’s okay to go slow.

Take your time to read through the amigurumi pig crochet pattern before beginning. Doing so will ensure that you don’t fasten at the wrong round or use the incorrect crochet stitch.

The necessary crochet stitches are the chain stitch, the single crochet stitch, and the increase and decrease of the single crochet stitch. As with the majority of amigurumi patterns, you must be able to start crocheting with a magic ring and crochet around a foundation chain.

If you have problems understanding any portion of the instructions, we have a crochet animal guide for beginners that you can use as a guide.

Crochet Supplies & Tools

To make your crochet pig, you will need acrylic yarn in pink and gray, 10mm dome-button eyes, craft pipe cleaner or craft floral wire (to make a tail that may be coiled), and polyester fiberfill. 

You will need a crochet hook of 2.5 mm, a long darning needle, a fabric marker, scissors, and pins.

How To Crochet Pig Amigurumi

Let’s now learn how to crochet Pegilop the pig. If you have ever used our free amigurumi pattern to create a stuffed animal, you must be familiar with the procedure. However, let’s review it again! 

  • First, crochet and stuff the Amigurumi Pig’s body, head, ears, nose, arms, hooves, legs, and tail separately. 
  • Then, attach the head’s nose, eyes, and ears before attaching it to the body. 
  • Finally, connect the pig’s arms, legs, and tail to her body to complete her! Don’t forget to give it lots of hugs and love!

How To Assemble Crochet Pig

  1. Crochet and stuff the following pig parts according to the crochet pattern: Body, Head, Ears, Snout, Arms, Legs, and Tail.
    crochet pig pattern
  2. Attach Eyes, Snout, and Ears to the Head:
    a. Stitch the Snout from Rounds 12 to 25. Before you finish sewing, stuff the snout with some polyester fiberfill.
    b. Mark the top of the head with two C-shaped lines to indicate the position of the ears: begin at Round 6 and work your way down to Round 15, which is 18 stitches apart at the top and 33 stitches apart at the bottom.
    Check that the snout is centered between the ears.
    Sew around the ears after pinning them to the marking.
    c. Sew eyes near the snout at Round 16. Instead of cutting the yarn after stitching the first eye, insert the needle into the head and emerge out from the position of the second eye to sew another eye.
    Pull the yarn slightly to sink the eyes into the head, then knot tightly.
    To prevent the yarn from snapping in the long run, run it through the head a few times.

  3. Sew the Head to the Body:
    Place the head on top of the body. Mark the position and, if necessary, secure it with pins.
    Sew the Head and Body together.

  4. Sew Arms and Legs:
    Sew the arms at the side, next to the head and body seams.
    The legs were then sewn at round 17 (from the bottom) of the body.
