Being the firstborn of the litter, Pupu is courageous, responsible, and protective over her siblings. She can sense danger easily and would do anything to keep her brothers and sisters out of harm’s way. While she may sometimes come off as naggy and bossy, her siblings understand that is just how she showers them with love and care. When their mother isn’t around, Pupu is the one they turn to when they need help.

Can’t tell the pink-colored Amigurumi piglets apart? Just look at the shape of their belly buttons! Pupu has an X-shaped belly button, while the other two have a line and round-shaped belly button. If you wish to add some dirt spots on the piglets, refer to this free crochet pig amigurumi pattern to learn how to.

Get Ready To Crochet

Depending on your skill level, it takes roughly an hour to complete crocheting one piglet amigurumi. The materials and tools required are acrylic yarns in pink and grey, 6mm safety eyes, polyester fiberfill, a 2.5 mm crochet hook, a long tapestry needle, a water erasable fabric marker, scissors, and pins. 

It is also essential to understand some basic crochet terms (US terms) that we will be using for this pattern. Those include chain (ch), 2sc increase (inc), invisible decrease (inv dec), single crochet (sc), and slip stitch (slst).

Like all other amigurumi patterns,  you will be working in a continuous round to crochet this piglet. For example, once you’ve completed six stitches for round 1 of the crochet piglet’s leg, move on to the second round of stitches, and so on. By following the piglet crochet pattern, you will end up with a lovely 4” Amigurumi piglet. We chose to crochet our piglets with two colors to give them some contrast. However, feel free to use a single color if you prefer!

Moving on with how to create these tiny Amigurumi piglets. First, prepare the piglets’ parts by crocheting and stuffing their body, arms, legs, ears, head, and snout separately. Before connecting the crochet piglet’s head to its body, sew its snout, ears, and eyes to its head. Lastly, finish off by sewing the piglet amigurumi’s arms, legs, and tail to its body! On a side note, while safety eyes (with locking plate) are baby-safe, however, if it is a concern to you, do replace them with felt or embroidery to avoid choking hazards for children ☺

Fun Facts About Piglet

Much like human moms, mother pigs enjoy singing to their babies while nursing them. As the piglets grow older, they develop about 20 vocalizations and communicate by squealing and grunting. Once you get to know them, they’re a friendly and talkative bunch! 

A trained piglet can learn its name at just two to three weeks old. Piglet can learn to respond when called and learn tricks faster than dogs.
