How to Crochet a Pig

The head, body, limbs, and ears of the amigurumi pig are worked in the round, which means that you begin with a magic circle and then crochet in a spiral to build out a spherical shape. Once the pieces are crocheted and stuffed, they are sewn together using a yarn needle to put together the pig crochet. For the nostrils on the snout of the amigurumi pig, you will need only a small length of black yarn to embroider two small, vertical lines.

Amigurumi Pig Pattern Tips

One of the trickiest techniques when beginning to crochet your first amigurumi is the magic ring/circle. This is the start of each piece in of pig amigurumi free pattern and it creates a circular base that you work around to form the head, body and other pieces.

There are several ways to make a magic ring/circle. If it’s your first time making the magic ring, don’t worry if it takes a bit of practice to get right. But once you get it, you have now gotten over one of the toughest hurdles in crocheting! And then start crocheting your own pig crochet animal!

Pig Amigurumi Pattern

When making the amigurumi pig, you will stuff each piece with polyfill. If you want to avoid the stuffing showing through the pig crochet, the stitches on your pieces should be tight and close together. This is accomplished by using the right hook size with the yarn that you’re using.

For my amigurumi pig pattern, I used medium/worsted weight yarn. You’ll know if the yarn is the right weight by looking at the label for the “4” symbol. For the hook size, I recommend starting with a 4.0 mm hook. If you find that your stitches are too loose, try switching to a 3.5 mm hook. If your stitches are too tight, you can try a 4.5 mm hook. When your crocheting experience grows after a few pig crochet projects, you’ll find what works best for you.
