Amigurumi Pig Crochet Pattern

After about a 3-month break from Mei Li of AmiguruMei, she is back to contribute another super cute amigurumi pattern, the Amigurumi Pig called Princess P (P for Peanut).

Princess P, the amigurumi pig has a rosy chick and she likes to wear her favorite ballerina skirts, not forgetting her little princess crown. This stuffed pig is a sweet, well-mannered little girl. She loves ice cream but mommy has just put her on a month-long diet. How nice it would be if she had a friend or two…

This piggy amigurumi Princess P is about 5″ high if crochet with sport weight or baby yarn. Bulkier yarn will give a slightly bigger doll size, vice versa, the lighter yarn will give a smaller size. You may refer to this post to find a suitable yarn size and its corresponding hook size for amigurumi. Read this post for general amigurumi knowledge.
