  • Step 1

    Amigurumi Pig
    Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice
    GAUGE:

    EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
    BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
    STITCH EXPLANATION:

    sc2tog (sc decrease) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.

    NOTES:

    Pig is worked in continuous rnds; do not join or turn unless otherwise instructed.
