Work in the top of the first stitch. This will eliminate the seam. Yarn Marker - This marks the first or last stitch of each round. It can be a simple strand of scrap yarn to mark the stitch or a bread twisty tie. Single Crochet Decrease - Insert the crochet hook through the stitch, wrap the yarn over the hook, pull the yarn through. Insert the hook through the next stitch, wrap the yarn over and pull it through. There are three loops on the hook. Wrap the yarn over and pull through all three loops. Chain 4, join. Round 1: Work 12 SC through the chain. Do not join and work in the continual round. (12 single crochet total) Round 2-4: Work 1 SC in each stitch around (12 single crochet total) Round 5: 2 SC in each stitch around (24 single crochet total) Round 6: 1 SC in each stitch around (24 single crochet total) Round 7: *1 SC in each of the next 2 stitch, 2 SC in the next stitch, continue around from *, (32 single crochet total) Round 8-11: 1 SC in each stitch around (32 single crochet total) Round 12: 1 SC in each of the next 6 stitches, CH 3, skip 3 single crochet. 1 SC in each of the next 2 stitches.

The legs will be worked. We will come back to this and unravel a few stitches to put in the stuffing. Legs - Make 4 There will be four openings at the bottom of the pig belly for the legs. All four will be the same. Round 1: Evenly work 10 single crochet around the opening. We will continue with the continual round Round 2: Work 1 SC in the next stitch, Work 2 SC in the next stitch, continue around from * (15 Single Crochet total) Round 3-4: Work one single crochet in each stitch around Round 5: Work 1 SC in the next stitch, Work a single crochet decrease (10 single crochet total) Cut off a long length of tail, knot and secure. Thread your needle and weave through the last round of stitches and pull the round shut. Knot, secure and sew in the tail. Eyes - The eyes can be worked before you add the stuffing or you can sew them on at the end. If you are using plastic of glass eyes, you will want to do them before stuffing and closing. Work a chain 3, join. Sew to head between rounds 4 and 5. Stuffing the Pig At this point we can stuff the pig legs and body. You will probably need to undo the last round of single crochet decrease stitches on round 27. Once you get the pig stuff, work round 27 with the single crochet decrease. Knot and secure. Thread your needle and weave through the opening and pull the stitches shut. Knot and secure, weave in the tail. Tail - Work a chain of 10 - Work 2 Slip stitch between different threads. It should curl. Once you get to the other end, weave your needle on one side and slightly pull to make the tail curl more. I found this way made a thinner tail. You can also work the tail with 2-3 single crochet .
